Event Description

You are invited to an emergency meeting of the Bristol Tree Forum at Bristol City Hall on Tuesday, 4th July 2017 between 6pm and 8pm.

You may wish to share this poster with other tree lovers.

 The meeting will discuss and consider the following urgent issues:

  • The Council’s decision to stop street tree maintenance in the city

 The consequences of this, should the decision not be reversed

 What solutions there may be to this threat to Bristol’s street trees

 A response to the Council’s consultation process

 A plan for a way ahead

 

We hope to hear from speakers from Sheffield, where their Council’s careless decision to outsource highway maintenance did not consider the impact on its urban tree cover.   As a result, there is needless destruction of Sheffield’s magnificent street trees.

We also hope to hear from Birmingham Trees for life, a community group, working with the council to protect, maintain and plant trees in public open spaces, as a possible model for future action in Bristol.

In the meantime, visit our website to review this urgent issue, and write to your councillors and MPs and make your comments in the local press.
