The Urban Tree Planting project is now complete, and we wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in both the consultation and the planting days. The trees look small and delicate at the moment, but they’ll be around for years and help keep our green spaces healthy for generations to come!

We are delighted to be supporting Hyndburn Borough Council deliver their part in the Pennine Lancashire Treescapes Project. The wider project will plant nearly 40,000 trees across Pennine Lancashire in the winter of 2021/22. Partners include Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle and Rossendale Borough Councils who have come together with charities Ribble Rivers Trust and Prospects Foundation to deliver the project, thanks to almost £160,000 of funding from the Forestry Commission’s Local Authority Treescapes Fund and £11,000 from Trees for Cities. A mix of native tree species and fruit trees are being planted in a series of micro woodlands. They will help combat historic and ongoing losses of trees caused by urbanisation, pests and diseases.

As part of the project, the team want to involve local people in the plans and tree planting across the sites. There will be a survey issued for every planting site so do keep checking back for details of new sites, proposals and planting dates. Or, if you would like to find out more about taking part, you can contact [email protected]
