Climate Emergency

Good morning/evening all.

Like a number of other local authorities and governments around the world, my 
particular council has announced a climate emergency. I am currently working 
on updating our tree strategy though this will likely take some time, 
therefore I am interested to hear if any local authority tree 
officers/arborists have used such a declaration to strengthen their position 
and if so how. I'm thinking along the lines of a moratorium on the removal of 
all trees growing on council land unless the removal is safety related. Such 
a move would strengthen my argument when faced with residents requesting that 
a particular tree be removed due to causing a nuisance.

All comments welcome (unless it includes drive or cycle by assessments!).

Cheers, Tim
