    Plymouth Liberal Democrats have come out in support of the STRAW campaign to save Armada Way's trees. At an Executive Meeting on Monday the newly elected Chair, Katie McManus, said, "As a party that has always been a leader on environmental issues the preservation of trees is vital. Apart from the pleasure a mature tree provides, they are essential to fighting the climate increase, reducing toxic pollution and providing a home for hundreds of birds and insects. We believe this green lung at the heart of Plymouth is a great contributor to the well-being of the people of this city and a highly valuable area of urban forest."
