TODAY (01 December) we spent some time at the Eco Hub in Aberystwyth where we saw members of the public come to collect their free trees as part of the Welsh Government initiative to get more trees planted in Wales.
Climate Minister Lee Waters has been passionately working to get this initiative out to more people across Wales calling it a “call to arms” to plant more trees across Wales to tackle climate change and improve air-quality and the mental wellbeing of families and individuals in Wales.

The Eco Hub, open from 3 – 6pm today, saw a number of people approach the hub to collect their free tree before 3pm. It was a productive day for the Eco Hub staff who maintained a welcoming and helpful attitude throughout the afternoon.

There was a positive attitude from all the people collecting toward the Welsh Government initiative. There were praises for the idea of planting more trees and creating a safer, greener future for the future generations.
The signing process for the tree helps the Welsh Government to receive feedback as to how the tree is fairing in its new home.
