Meike Weiser was the speaker for our July Monthly Meeting. Meike is Project Officer for the Cornwall Council initiative ‘Forest for Cornwall’, which encourages and enables individuals, businesses and communities in the planting of trees. A particular focus is to ensure that the right trees are planted in the right place. Meike also reminded members of the multiple benefits of trees, to humans, to biodiversity, to communities and the planet. The ultimate aim of the programme, also known as F4C, is to cover 8,000 hectares of the county with new trees, whether it be individual trees in gardens, hedgerows, urban planting or in parks by the year 2030. Every council area is also being offered a free tree for their community. You can read more, and find out how you can get involved, by clicking the link below.
