The 21st March is International Forest Day. She went onto say “Here in a large Urban City, it may seem to be the wrong venue to champion forests and trees. But in actual fact it is the right place to make these statements. Having trees around is good for our health and good for the Worlds living organisms. I fully support  these important  – key messages of this year’s theme which includes

  • Understanding our forests and keeping them healthy is crucial for our future
  • You’re never too young to start learning about trees
  • Both modern and traditional knowledge are key to keeping forests healthy
  • Investing in forestry education can change the world for the better
  • Women and men should have equal access to forest education

We need trees to create important wildlife corridors, to place oxygen back into our atmosphere, and we need trees to make our environment look good and and clean our air.”

Councillor Rita Potter was supported in her statement by her Wednesfield North Ward colleagues Cllr Mary and Phil Bateman Click on the URL which will lead you to You Tube at the bottom of the page.
