SAVE TREES AND HOMES ON EDINBURGH'S WATER OF LEITH sign now

Healthy, mature trees are being hacked down along Edinburgh's Water of Leith in a heavy handed and flawed plan to prevent flooding. Much of our precious urban landscape has already been decimated. But by acting together we can stop the magnificent trees at Canonmills Bridge from going under the chop.

These beautiful willow and birch trees take up a large volume of water through their roots, which also stabilise the riverbank. They are essential in protecting homes from flooding, noise and pollution. Chopping them down would make flooding more likely, not less.

Edinburgh City Council must be encouraged to work with nature, not against it and implement a plan that will save this iconic landmark for the benefit of people and wildlife.

UNITED WE STAND AND SO WILL THE TREES.
