Save Oxford Downtown Trees

144 Signatures Goal: 250

Save The Trees in Downtown Oxford The Borough of Oxford plans to remove all trees in the downtown shopping district and replace them with planters. The Borough believes that the trees are being removed to make the streets attractive to shoppers. It is contrary to all surveys and studies that reflect that shoppers are attracted to downtown areas with dense trees. The trees provide shade, cooling local temperatures, important in the removal of pollutants, providing a habitat for birds, buffering sound, absorbing water and providing an attractive green environment to live and work in. Many Oxfordians want trees in our downtown area. We are asking Borough Council to cease their plan to remove the trees and to maintain our mature trees in the heart of our beloved town.
