The eucalyptus is suited to hot, dry summers and represents the adaptations that will have to be made to combat climate change. The ceremony was witnessed by members of the Havant FOE, the Transition Towns Network and the borough’s tree wardens, Council staff members have also made dozens of personal pledges to greener living.
