Winchester City Council should aim to plant more trees within the City/District.

We Did

Comments from the public will be considered during planning for the tree planting programme for next season and we are aiming to increase our planting numbers over the coming years. The planting process has to be carefully planned by our Tree Officers in order to ensure we’re diversifying our tree stock and not planting in inappropriate places.
