Church Stretton Tree Group was established in 2008 to champion the magnificent trees in Church Stretton. The impetus for its formation was the publication of the Town Design Statement which emphasises the importance of tree cover to the essential character of the town and surrounding area.
Our aims are to
* oversee and implement the Town Design Statement Tree Guidelines and Recommendations
* provide monitoring and support to protect valued trees
* work with Local Authorities and others to ensure the protection of important trees and woodland
* encourage new planting using appropriate species
* raise awareness of the importance of trees and woodland
* encourage a culture of tree care
* provide good quality tree advice
* involve the whole community in activities based on trees
