Trees are one of the most important and impressive features of the English landscape, and here in Exeter our topography and climate encourage a wide range of species.
Views into and out of the city are dominated by this rich treescape, and it makes the City a green and pleasant environment in which to live and work. Amongst the many benefits of trees are their ability to alleviate noise from traffic, screen tall buildings and large industrial areas, provide shade and of course habitats for a vast number of bird, insect and animal species.
