Why we need an arboretum...

Although the architectural heritage is protected through the Grade listing system, there is little such protection for trees. Tree Preservation Orders and AONB designation fail to protect individual trees or areas of land from developers. The Sid valley landscape is beautiful and we need to ensure its future, in the face of tree diseases, pressure from commercial and private development. We need to plant new trees so that our children can inherit a green and healthy environment. Cutbacks in funding mean that the community is likely to have to take a more active role . An additional small tree with a shrub or two in small urban gardens can support a high level of biodiversity. We should label good trees, shown on the database.

Now run as an independent association, the committee adheres to the following objectives: Please contact us if you would like any further information. We also welcome your suggestions of your favourite tree or a location where you would like to see some permanent tree or shrub planting.
