SAVE THE M32 MAPLES
Developers are attempting to cut down 3 maple trees along a stretch of disputed land at the side of the M32 motorway in St Pauls, Bristol. With pollution levels in the city already at an illegally high rate, and childhood asthma rates on the rise, any loss of trees in the area will drastically lower the ability for carbon capture and impact on the health of local residents. I went down to talk to the group of activists attempting to save the trees from being felled.
