New funding will see thousands of trees planted across Wolverhampton
Twenty thousand new trees will be planted across Wolverhampton after the council secured almost £130,000 from The Woodland Trust.
Planting is planned for areas of the city where there is currently less tree cover and will support the council’s Tree and Woodland Strategy as well as recognising our recently declared climate emergency.
The conservation charity invited councils to bid for funding under its Emergency Tree Fund which aims to look after existing trees as well as identify new areas for planting.
The money will enable us to identify where trees are most needed, carry out the planting and continue to monitor the trees. New planting will take place at the end of this year and into next spring.
