Urban tree planting
January to March 2022
As part of the implementation of the strategy, we delivered tree planting within identified urban wards during the winter planting season (January to March 2022). We planted a range of individual native broadleaf and/or fruit trees on selected sites, whilst ensuring that the selected trees are suitable for each site.
These sites were:
- Hanbridge Avenue
- Repton Drive
- Westbury Road (The Saplings)
- Wilson Street and Heath Street
- Winchester Drive
Additional trees will be planted in the current planting season.
These sites form part of an essential mosaic of local greenspace sites that will be protected for the benefit of nature recovery and carbon capture for the future and in time further carbon reduction opportunities on these sites will also be considered with community involvement.
