Trees are just simply quite brilliant at what they do.
It's odd that most people go through life without planting any at all.
Problems are most likely...where do you put them?
I think planting trees would be an excellent community project for those who have fallen on the wrong side of her majestys pleasure, as it would help generate a sense of having done something that will ultimately benefit others...as opposed to committing the opposite.
As for why there are so few trees on the southern Broads? I am not sure.
I know Alder grows like weeds and is highly suited to the local environment.
Some will say that it ruins the views etc or will clog up navigation and hinder sailing...which is true.
However, the Norfolk Broads is disappearing in front of our eyes and I would have thought planting trees is probably the best way to counter the inevitable.
Let's face it! The water levels might be coming up but they might just go down again.
The land doesn't drain without assistance so why not get trees to handle the situation?

The best way to save the broads, and for that matter the world in general, is to limit the amount of humans on it.

but nobody wants to talk about that eh?

At 426 people/sq km, England is the most overcrowded large nation in Europe.

and still they keep coming, breeding, spreading, the countryside is shrinking, towns expanding and becoming more congested than they already are.

I'll be dead and forgotten by the time it reaches critical mass, but it's starting to show early signs at present.
If the human race doesn't destroy it before then, the planet will heal, it has in the past, we are nothing more than parasites, and we have had our chance,,,, we blew it. :roll:

The reason why there is a migration here is because the generation is old.
Sounds harsh but it's true
People in Britain live a long time because it's a creative nation and change is something this country works with like grease.
Social integration may have failed but a simple trip on London's underground shows just how well this country works by being global.
Global trade? Sounds good

Keeping to the subject of trees, and the virtue of planting a few hundred along the river bank,all wrapped up with smiley
pretty faces.
The Taiga forest of the northern hemisphere, this arboreal wilderness is vastly larger than all the tropical rain forests of the world combined and absorbs more carbon, yet is almost completely off the environmentalist's radar.
unaware of the threat from logging and pollution to these forests, The Canadian and Alaskan Taiga is being felled, chipped and pelleted, loaded onto vast diesel-powered ships and transported across the Atlantic to the UK to be burnt in the Drax power station as a "renewable fuel". And even without the huge transport footprint, less energy is produced per tonne of carbon from this desecration than would be if we burned Nottinghamshire coal and blew the smoke straight into the sky out of a brick stack. All to tick a green box or two, get a few egotists re-elected and generate some virtue signaling headlines.
