P-05-911 Protect Wales’ Ancient Yew Trees

This petition was submitted by Janis Fry having collected a total of 77 paper  signatures.


Text of Petition             

Please sign my petition call for ancient Yew trees to be protected by law.


Currently there is no legal protection for these beautiful trees. It's urgent that we protect this vital part of our heritage with specific legal protection before we lose any more. These Yew trees have been a part of Britain for thousands of years. They are our ancient living monuments, our ancient living witnesses to the history of our ancestors and our civilisation. We must protect them as a matter of urgency before any more are lost.
