I wish to apply for a preservation order for an oak tree I planted in my garden in 1976 struck from an acorn my young son picked up in Bramfield Woods near where we live. The tree is now a beautiful healthy tree about about 8m tall at the edge of my garden and is an environmental asset on a housing estate where trees are few and far between. Also, the tree has a special significance to my wife and me, as my young son (8 years) died a few months after planting the acorn.
