This petition was submitted by Coed Cadw Woodland Trust, having collected 2,258 paper signatures.


Text of the Petition

·         I support the aspiration that every city, town and village in Wales should benefit from at least 20% tree canopy cover, matching the leafy suburbs of the best places to live

·         I call on the Welsh Government to support this by establishing a challenge fund for tree planting to improve the environment where people live

·         This should particularly support the planting of native trees, that can provide a habitat and nectar source for pollinators, and also fruit trees, that will provide a sustainable source of food.
