I bought 3 trees to put in my parents village green. They told my dad they don't want them because they are not 'native'.

All the trees were in fact endangered in thier original native habitats from logging etc but have been here for hundreads of years which is why I chose them.

The native arguement in the U.K is a rather stupid one anyway. The last ice age wiped out any truely native fauna here and its been slowly been introduced by nature or humans since then.

There have been lots of cases of people spraying herbicide, fungicides etc to 'protect' native plants too.
