Trees Can get emails!

Email-a-Tree Service in Australia
  • You Can Email Trees In Melbourne, Australia.
  • The city of Melbourne assigned trees email addresses so citizens could report problems. Instead, people wrote thousands of love letters to their favourite trees.
  • Officials assigned the trees ID numbers and email addresses in 2013 as part of a program designed to make it easier for citizens to report problems like dangerous branches. The “unintended but positive consequence,” as the chair of Melbourne’s Environment Portfolio, Councillor Arron Wood, put it to me in an email, was that people did more than just report issues. They also wrote directly to the trees, which have received thousands of messages everything from banal greetings and questions about current events to love letters and existential dilemmas.
