Task Area 1 Trees Along Main Transport Corridors

The main transport corridors, road, rail and canal are often the only view a traveller through the Borough will have. Many people use these routes so the trees along them are very noticeable.
These trees are important because they:
  • Improve the image of our Borough.
  • Clean the air.
  • Cool the towns in summer.
  • Cut down traffic noise.
  • May link up open spaces.
Objectives
  • Maintain the existing tree cover by good tree management.
  • Plant replacement trees as existing trees get old.
  • Improve the tree cover where it is poor with new tree planting.
