The Diamond Forest is a great addition to the city and I think it provides a great opportunity for the children of Portsmouth to be a part of something great.

The trees will last for a long time so the children will be able to return there with their children or grandchildren and say that they planted that tree.

It will give the kids something to be proud of and it will give them something to show their family now.

It could also help the schools with their teaching because the children can learn about plants and trees and their life-cycles.

They would be able to relate the trees they planted and it could make the subject more interesting.

I think we could have the schools come together and plant the trees which will bring a great unity to the city.

All we need is for the schools to come together with the council and decide which school could plant where and things like that.

Then even the parents could get involved and got down to site and help their children plant the trees.

I just feel that 50,000 trees is a big number so why not have a big project to do it justice?

I would just be an amazing feat by the council and would truly make the site something amazing.

It will be good for the children to be able to return to the site when they’re old and say that they planted that tree. It could be the defining moment of the current generation.

It is just another thing they can do to get children outside and caring about the environment.

The site is going to be fantastic when it is finished with the park and the cycle route and I think the future children will love it.
