Garden Forest Scheme
In celebration of National Tree Week, we have launched a pilot Garden Forest Scheme, which is part of our aspiration to become a net-zero carbon borough, and we are inviting residents to apply for a tree, or trees, for their own garden.
Over the next five years, we are looking to plant 250,000 trees across the borough to increase carbon sequestration rates and the garden forest scheme is just one part of this. Carbon sequestration is a process whereby the trees will draw excess CO2 from the atmosphere and store it.
In order to apply to the Garden Forest Scheme, visit its Engage platform, where you will find an expression of interest form and more information about the scheme, and the project as a whole.
