Ian McDermott, arboriculturialist and trainer for BTP, talks to BTP Chair Tonia Clark about the role of street trees and how imperative they really are, which is why we need more of them.

Street trees often go quite unnoticed, but they are an extremely important part of our city and town landscapes. They help reduce urban heat islands, improve air quality, storm-water drainage, amongst many other sought-after qualities.

There’s also a short piece on the oak tree.
