Submit evidence to Strategic road investment inquiry – NOW

Strategic road investment Inquiry

The inquiry has been launched following the National Audit Office’s report which highlighted concerns about value for money issues in regard to projects including the proposed LTC.

Help record trees

The Woodland Trust is also asking us, the public, to help spot and report ancient, veteran, and notable trees. Obviously they can only know about and try to protect these trees if they know where they are, so please do check on their website if you know of an old tree and see if it has been recorded, and if not please add the details to help build their database HERE.

 

Need an extra bit of help to ID trees by their leaves?  Check out this free download.
