The Association of Tree Officers (ATO) will promote, support and represent Tree Officers. Administrative control of ATO will be undertaken by the ATO Directors, supported by the National Co-ordinator, Becky Porter.
The UK Parliament Committee inquiry will examine these questions and what lessons can be learnt from the failure to meet previous tree planting ambitions in England. It will also consider how to balance the drive to plant more trees with the many other benefits for health, nature, and the economy derived from woods and forests.
The committee wants to hear your views. We welcome submissions from anyone with answers to the questions in the call for evidence. You can submit evidence until 6 December 2020. Please go to link: https://committees.parliament.
