Autumn Copper Beech and Magnolia

The birds love trees. It is where they have their home. Trees are our neighbours and have roots.

The birds are free. The clouds come and go. Houses are the opposite of clouds – they stay put. Like trees, houses give us shelter. Some of the clouds are trails made by aeroplanes. In the aeroplanes are people who, like the birds, are on their way.

Imagine if we could vote for trees. Please write their manifesto.

Introducing the Sylvan Party with the manifesto “A Greener Tomorrow, Rooted in Today”.

  • Sustainable Growth: Just as trees grow in harmony with their environment, we advocate for sustainable urban development that respects nature and promotes green spaces.
  • Environmental Stewardship: We are committed to protecting and expanding our towns’ parks, forests, and natural reserves. Our goal is to increase tree cover by 30% over the next decade.
  • Community Roots: Strong communities are like deep roots. We encourage community gardening, local farming, and the use of public spaces for local markets, fostering a close-knit community spirit.
  • Renewable Resources: Promoting the use of renewable energy sources, we aim to lead in energy efficiency and low carbon footprint living.
  • Education and Awareness: We believe in educating our citizens, especially the young, about the importance of trees and the environment.

“As trees, we have stood the test of time, providing shelter, air, and beauty. Now, as your elected representatives, we will bring to the fore these same values of resilience, sustainability, and community”.
