    Swansea already has a lot of trees in its parks, gardens and on some brown field sites. There is still a massive opportunity to bring more trees into the city centre where trees can help improve air quality, soak up excess rainwater, provide shade, shelter from wind and make the place feel much nicer. To do this we need to choose the right trees for the right setting but also overcome barriers to tree planting such as fears about maintenance costs, etc.

    This tree-mapping project (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jan/29/city-of-melbourne-prepares-to-see-some-emails-lovely-as-its-trees) in Melbourne, which had an unexpected side-effect of thousands of residents sending love-letters to the trees, is a great reminder of why we need to look after and plant trees – they are not only good for our health, we just love them, too!
