Trees make Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s trees are worth £348 million.

They frame our most famous landmarks and tower over our parks, but like all living things they eventually die. It takes 30-50 years for a tree that is planted today to be as large as a 150 year old specimen.

It is time to start planting their replacements now.
