Quoting Simon Keenan <email@example.com>:
With regard to your question about TPOs discouraging people from
planting> trees, I don't think they do. The vast majority of the public
can't think past next Thursday, never mind 40 years hence when the new tree
would be at a stature where it might be worth a TPO.
I agree with this: there is constant recruitment of new trees in urban areas
thanks to planting zeal and no doubt sales figures from the nursery trade
would support this, but I think also you are a little unkind about people's
motivation: you don't need to be an arb to recognise that the tree is a
small act of altruism, something you gift to the future.
Planting zeal also goes some way to sustaining the felling industry by its
poor site/species selection.
