Tree Charter

We the undersigned petition the council to follow the guidelines of the new Tree Charter (Woodland Trust) and in particular the article to "Protect irreplaceable trees and woods".

All articles of the newly announced Tree Charter are important to protect the environment in and around Cheltenham. In particular the first article states:

Ancient woods have been continuously wooded since before records started: they are living descendants from Britain’s prehistory. A tree may be a village’s oldest inhabitant, a founding figure in a region’s identity, a natural monument in the nation’s story. Thorn-bushes and hedgerows harbour our history. Old orchards are habitats for some of our rarest species and living museums of disappearing ways of life. A country that cares for its future cares for its past: we need laws and commitment to protect these irreplaceable natural treasures.

This ePetition runs from 06/11/2017 to 18/12/2017.
