Tree Preservation Orders

Trees are essential to our daily lives. They absorb carbon dioxide and airborne pollutants and release oxygen into the air. Additionally they improve the appearance of the urban environment and provide shade in summer. Trees improve our local environments by lowering the temperate, reduce erosion, and provide habitats for native animals. It is for these reasons that councils encourage tree planting and put strict tree preservation orders in place to ensure the retention of trees. Careful management of trees is required for the betterment of the whole community.
