Trees

Volume 694: debated on Wednesday 18 July 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have to ensure that all urban streets with pavements in United Kingdom cities have planted trees. [HL4790]

There are no plans to ensure that all urban streets with pavements have planted trees. The planting and maintenance of trees is a matter for each local and highway authority to consider in the light of local circumstances and taking account of the needs of the local environment. Local authorities are encouraged to produce tree strategies to promote the management and enhancement of the trees in their area.
