More Trees Please! Meeting to launch our Trees for Climate campaign
We need to increase tree planting on a very large scale. Friends of the Earth is calling on the UK government to commit to double tree cover across the UK as one part of work to tackle the climate crisis here and across the world.
Oxford Friends of the Earth is working across Oxfordshire to support this work. Our aims are to support FoE’s national campaign and also to at least double tree cover in Oxfordshire (over the next 20 years) to absorb CO2 emissions and increase biodiversity. Currently Oxfordshire has about 9% tree cover.
We’re holding a meeting to discuss this new work, on Tuesday August 13th in Oxford at the Wesley Memorial Hall, New Inn Hall St.
The meeting is in two parts. From 7.30 – 9pm we will discuss developing the campaign and what we should do.
Immediately prior to that (from 6pm-7.30pm) – we will be holding a discussion / workshop with Guy Shrubsole, one of Friends of the Earth’s national tree campaign staff. Guy is also the author of the recent book ‘Who owns England?’. He will introduce a discussion on the trees campaign and also talk about how communities can identify and approach land owners about tree planting.
