The film aims to encourage people to enjoy the nature of the cemetery, its peaceful stillness and the trees as they change their colour this autumn.

The film is presented by Steve Clark who has 30 years of experience in the arboricultural industry ranging from site work to business management and independent arboricultural consultancy. Steve looks after the tree stock for the town council.

The information in the film given by Steve ranges from how the coastal wind affects the trees to how clippings from the yew trees go to make cancer treatments.

The Trees Of Milton Road Cemetery was commissioned by the climate change working party, part of the town council’s commitment to being carbon neutral by 2030.
