I just took a call from a VEPP (Very Experienced Parks Person) who said that his council recently surveyed it's residents to find out what the big ticket concerns were.
"The top three were traffic congestion, road improvements and trees" he said.
My heart sank. I was sure he was going to say that the residents were unhappy about the problems their street trees were causing.
"No, no, quite the opposite" he said, "- they want MORE of them!"
This is fantastic news. I know this municipality. Let's just say it's not traditionally been known as a tree-loving place ;) For them to now put "more street trees" in their Top 3 is very exciting indeed.
The tide is turning I reckon.
