News reports & helpful tips on tree surgeons.

Northumberland is set to plant millions of trees in an effort to combat climate change and increase biodiversity.

The Northumberland Woodland Creation Partnership stated in the initial phase of the project that it would establish new forests at Rusty Knowe in Kielder and Monkridge near Otterburn by 2024.

The partnership stated that by 2030, it hoped to have planted millions of trees.

Additionally, the plan includes smaller-scale initiatives such as the establishment of new orchards and small community woodlands.

The scheme is funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) through its Nature for Climate Fund.

Northumberland County Council leader Glen Sanderson stated, “The goal is to increase the amount of wooded land in the county by 2030 in order to help address major societal challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss while also supporting a thriving local economy.”
