Plan to protect trees
10:00am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
An environmental charity is launching a scheme to preserve the country’s trees.
The Earth Trust, based at Little Wittenham near Didcot, will join the Future Trees Trust and Forest Research in launching the project to improve broadleaf trees on Thursday at the House of Commons.
The Future Trees Trust has already begun work selecting genetic strains of trees which have sufficient diversity to be resilient to climate change.
Wantage and Didcot MP and culture minister Ed Vaizey will be supporting the project.
