Petition Require home owners who fell conservation area trees to fund urban tree planting

Trees trap carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, and improve the urban environment.

About 60,000 trees in our city conservation areas are felled every year. Many are not replaced.

We want parliament to pass legislation to ensure more trees are planted in our towns and cities.

More details

Local government lacks the funding to plant enough trees and has no obligation to plant.

This project would be cost-neutral for local authorities and we
believe would receive widespread local support.

It would assist the UK in meeting its carbon footprint target.
Most trees in conservation areas are not protected by Tree Protection Orders. Trees may be felled for good reasons, e.g. subsidence or for development. We seek legislation to ensure adequate replacement planting takes place in the urban locality.
