Trees make Edinburgh and the Lothians

Trees are important.

Over the last 20 years we has lost over 2,450 street trees. 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.
