The Tree Council CEO Sara Lom has posted an update on UK tree policy on their site and invites you to be a voice for trees.

Our CEO Sara Lom provides an update on the latest tree policy to keep you informed and to ask you please, to continue to be a voice for our precious trees, hedgerows, street trees and orchards across the country.
