The meeting will discuss and consider:
- The Council’s consultation on its recent decision to stop maintaining street trees in the city.
- The consequences of this should the decision not be reversed.
- What solutions to this threat to Bristol’s street trees we can to offer.
- To plan a way ahead.
We hope to hear from speakers from Sheffield, where the Council’s careless decision to outsource highway maintenance without considering the impact on its urban tree cover has and continues to result in the destruction of Sheffield’s magnificent street trees.
We also hope to hear from Birmingham Trees for Life, where, despite a similar decision ten years ago, they are still able to protect, maintain and plant trees in public open spaces.
More information to follow, but make it a date now!
In the meantime, please make your thoughts known by contacting your local Councillor and emailing the Mayor.
You can also Contact us here at Bristol Tree Forum to register your support and offer to help defend Bristol’s public tree spaces.
