You may have seen in the news that the plans for improving the A3/M25 interchange in Surrey will result in the compulsory takeover of 10,000sq meters of the RHS Wisley Gardens. This will result in the destruction of over 500 important specimen trees, as well as removing the treeline that provides shelter between the busy A3 and the RHS Wisley trials field. This plan cannot be allowed to go ahead. We, as horticulturists and gardeners, must work together to persuade Highways England to change their plans to something less destructive.
