Trees in residential roads
Encourage householders to plant trees in their front or back gardens. TCBC shouild provide advice on suitable species and assistance with planting for OAP's.
In Ponthir for instance when the housing estate on the grounds of The Hafod was carried out, all front gardens or wide verges adjoing were provided with a tree - mostly of a flowering variety. Few of these remain.
Why the contribution is important
Trees are highly beneficial in absorbing C02 emissions and reducing traffic noise. They also provide an excellent habitat for birds and insects.
