It seems to me know matter which way you look at it our cities, our suburbs and our communities are better off with the protection and planting of trees.

More and more research is showing us that trees can counter the dreaded 'heat island effect' by shading our sweltering hard surfaces from the full impacts of the relentless sun and they can also coax our kids outside.

It has been said recently by more than one politician that the festering sores of humanity, the blight on the landscape, are wait for it……windfarms! Seriously. Windfarms?
