Trees are a very important natural feature of “Open Spaces”.
Not only are they aesthetically pleasing but they serve an important biological funtion.
They provide a means of exchange of oxygen and carbondioxide.
They also release water vapour into the atmosphere.
They form part of the biomass.
I was therefore pleased to hear that Southwell Town Council are to spend quite a lot of money to care for the health of local trees.
The Chapter House of Southwell Minster depicts leaves of various native trees.
This shows their importance locally.
Keeping this natural treasure healthy recognises what an important resourse trees are in the environment.
