745 Bäume


On 16 June 2017, a group of protestors who were protesting against the proposed A5–Westast Autobahn attached posters with the words ‘irreplaceable’ in French and German, to the 745 trees that will be felled should the project go ahead.


If you stop at just one of any of those 745 trees, gaze into it branches and recognize its worth, the enormity of the loss becomes apparent.


Yet some still struggle to comprehend the value of old trees, preferring lorries and concrete, noise and pollution and a fractured town.
