Save The Trees of Armada Way
Plymouth City Council is regenerating Armada Way and in doing so will be chopping down virtually all the beautiful and well-established trees which make the city such a nice place to be.
If you would rather they change their plans to incorporate a bit more of what we already have rather than bulldozing it flat then get behind our campaign to save the trees! They are more important than a glimpse of a view of the war memorial on the Hoe.
The council say they want more trees, so why not just plant more trees?
Why is this important?
I love Plymouth and I think Armada Way, a route we walk once or twice a week, is fabulous and uniquely Plymouthy. The council can update it without taking away everything that is currently there. Well established urban trees are so important for shade, water absorption, better air quality and actually improve sales for the local shops amongst other things.
Plymouth has been flattened enough. Let’s try and hang on to part of its character! Levelling up should not involve levelling!
