Plan for Trees
Plymouth’s trees and woodlands (‘urban forest’) make our City a great place to live, work, do business and create an environment to invest in. The valuable services they provide are too often overlooked. It is time to wake up and see them as a highly valuable asset for Plymouth.
Plymouth’s recent Tree Canopy Cover Study revealed that although the City has 17% tree cover this amount varies massively from ward to ward. This imbalance needs to be redressed so everyone can benefit from the valuable services trees and our greenspaces provide. Eg: Devonport 5.8% and Budshead 25.3%
The Plan for Trees aims to help our ‘urban forest’ become fit for purpose, resilient to the challenges of climate change and disease and adaptable to whatever new challenges the future may hold.
We need your assistance in shaping the plan and its delivery.
