Sharing tree stories
The first stage in developing the Tree Charter was to encourage people
to share their tree stories, to tell us why they love trees,
and by contributing to help to build a future for trees in the UK.
All of the 50 000 stories received were analysed with the expert knowledge
of the 70 partner organisations of the Tree Charter,
in order to pull out the common the themes to write the content of the Charter.
The Principles of the Tree Charter were announced on 27 March 2017.
Tottenham contributed 572 tree stories.
The next stage is to get as many people as possible to sign up to the Tree Charter!
