The crucial role which trees play in people’s health and wellbeing was highlighted at an annual event in two North Somerset villages.
Members of YACWAG – Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group – staged their tenth annual tree dressing day, which is designed to draw attention to the importance of trees in our communities.
Trees are vital not just for wildlife but for people too, according to the group and the messages attached to 54 trees by YACWAG members.
Spokesman Faith Moulin said: “We hope people enjoy finding the trees we have labelled and, at this time when there is so much emphasis on cutting down trees, consider the ones quietly growing in our midst which are reducing pollution, reducing flood risk and producing oxygen for us.”
YACWAG’s book, The Treasured Trees of Yatton and Congresbury, is on sale at www.yacwag.org.uk for £5, while two complemntary tree trails are free to download.
