The Roads for Nature strives to propagate and disseminate best practice when it comes to the maintenance, establishment and protection of wayside trees. In this field, there is much to be learned from our Western neighbours. While the old West Germany lost almost all of its trees lining roads, the eastern Länder retained most of theirs. And since reunification, Germans have tried their best to weigh the need for the road system to develop with the crucial importance of protecting nature.
