Right Tree Right Place!

Planting trees is great.  Important.  It matters.  But it is more than hitting targets for numbers of trees planted.  Choosing suitable trees for the setting and then caring for them matter as much, if not more.  A landscaping scheme for a new motorway embankment was in the news recently.  When developed, the planting of one million new trees was celebrated, highlighted, emphasised.  One year later, it seems no one thought to water and weed and care for the young plants.  On such a scale, the trees selected are typically up to one metre high and 1-2 years old. And most if not all have died!  Will they be replaced?
