Unless Local Authorities draw up long term strategies for amenity trees, the urban treescape will change dramatically, over the next 20-50 years, as the legacy of mature broad-leaved trees die. This is the conclusion of a major survey of amenity trees in 66 Towns and villages around the country, published today by the Department of the Environment.

The report, 'Trees in Towns', found that 20% of trees are in public ownership; It is strongly recommends that local authorities take a lead in formulating long term strategies for the maintenance of existing trees, their eventual replacement, and the planting of new trees.
