Trees are part of the solution - 2nd Edition updated December 2016
In Spring 2012 London and the south east of England were officially declared to be in drought conditions. Just as our trees were coming into leaf, water suppliers imposed heavy restrictions which affected how and when newly-planted specimens could be watered.
The London Tree Officers Association (LTOA) feels that the current attitude toward trees in time of drought urgently needs to be challenged and revised. Rather than contributing to the problems associated with water management, trees are part of the solution.
