HC Deb 12 June 1985 vol 80 c458W
32. Mr. Flannery

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any reasonably accurate means of estimating the number of trees destroyed in the last five years.

Mr. Waldegrave

There are no comprehensive statistics available for tree loss over the last five years. My Department's current research study on monitoring landscape change should provide information on trees in hedges and woodland.
