Investing in Healthy Trees

Date: Friday 04th September 2020
Time: 10:00AM BST
Duration: 30 Minutes

With: Kenton Rogers

What is the cost of not investing in healthy trees? – Why are we planting trees which are never given the opportunity to reach their full growth potential and deliver maximum benefits? We are routinely failing to plant and maintain trees effectively, yet they are critical infrastructure in our urban areas, our frontline defence against climate change.

In this Friday focus, Kenton will be exploring not only why we should be investing more in young tree planting and establishment, which is the easy bit, but why are trees so underfunded and what we might be able to do about it.

How can we think about tree planting more strategically? Only then can we start to work together collectively to realise sustainable treescapes that will actually benefit future generations and communities.
