The Healing Benefits of Helensburgh’s Street Trees

At our AGM in November, those who attended were treated to a wonderful presentation by our newest board member Nicky Brownrigg.  She outlined the holistic benefits of living in towns with street trees and then described the traditional medicinal uses of specific species growing in Helensburgh’s streets.  From coughs to cuts and arthritis to anxiety, the audience discovered a new found appreciation for the trees we conserve.
