This is a good idea but the people who are involved in this go ahead without taking expert opinion from wildlife experts and start planting trees foreign to the country which are of little benefit to the animals they are supposed to help.Just now in Scotland the RSPB and other wildlife organizations are buying up conifer plantations and digging up the trees and are planting indigenous ones in their place.Already there are signs that this has a beneficial effect on the ecology.

I love trees and no there aren't enough oaks in most cities.
