Trees to be planted in Port Talbot to make the town cleaner and greener
RESIDENTS in eastern Port Talbot are being offered a free tree for their gardens as part of a project to make the town cleaner and greener.
A community day was held at Dyffryn Upper Comprehensive School to launch the Talbot Trees project, an initiative to improve air quality and health by planting 1,100 of the trees that are most effective at removing pollutants.
Environment Agency Wales's Mary Youell said: "Air quality in Port Talbot has improved a lot but there is still more for us to do.
"Trees are great at scrubbing pollution from the air and so can have a positive impact on health."
