It coincided with our addition of the Google Translate tools to the TreeWatch website. This enables the entire website to be automatically translated to a multitude of different European and other languages. According to our latest and Italian TreeWatch volunteer, the translation is not perfect but does a reasonable job.

We hope that interest in TreeWatch will continue to grow beyond the UK and help us play a role in securing a future for trees.
