Thousands more trees planted across Warwick district

Leamington Editorial 23rd Jan, 2024   0

THOUSANDS of new trees and hedgerows are being planted across the district this winter.

For a second year, Warwick District Council has funded the supply of more than 6,000 trees to local farms with the support of the Warwickshire Rural Hub, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, and the Heart of England Forest.

Participating farms picked up their packs of saplings recently, which will be planted to restore hedgerows and create new woodland areas.

WDC leader Coun Ian Davison said: “I’m delighted to see the continuation of this partnership with local landowners. The growing network will make a positive impact on our tree canopy cover across the district and is in line with our aims to improve biodiversity.




“Thanks go to our partners at the Warwickshire Rural Hub, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, and the Heart of England Forest for the work they have done to promote the scheme and to collate and advise on the orders received.”

The Free Trees for Farmers initiative is one of several projects being supported and delivered by WDC to enable tree planting across the district during the current tree planting season.
