About the consultation
Jersey’s trees are valuable for their beauty, nature, shade, birdsong, wellbeing, history, and many other reasons including climate resilience and life itself. When planted and growing close to where people live, or where pests and diseases take hold, trees can however cause issues. A Tree Strategy will set guiding principles and help manage these aspects, focusing on what's important for Jersey.
In July, a mixed stakeholder group of more than 40 people came to online workshops and shared ideas about what the Strategy could cover and say. The stakeholder group includes young people, community voices, government and other organisations with tree management, nature, recreation and wellbeing, business related to trees, farming, heritage and culture, development, and utility services.
Before firming up recommendations, the group needs to know what other people think.
The survey will take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. It will be available until Sunday 5 September 2021.
We will collect all the answers and summarise them for the group in time for the next workshop in September. What you say will not be attributable to you.
