In 2010 Peterborough Environment City Trust launched the Forest for Peterborough, an ambitious project to plant over 180,000 trees in and around the city by 2030. In an area where tree coverage is below the national average, we want to create a network of wooded areas, improving our green spaces, the quality of the air we breathe, and also making sure that Peterborough is less vulnerable to the effects of flooding and other extreme weather.
Since 2010 we have planted nearly 50,000 trees and our success needs to continue at this fast pace. We need to plant at least 9,000 trees each year to meet our target by 2030! With so much to do, now is the perfect time for you to get involved!
Come along to Ferrybridge, Castor on the 18th January from 10am to 4pm and help us to plant 1,800 Willow Cuttings. Our experts will teach you everything you need, so come along with your family or friends for a fun and free day out! Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
Please contact Ben Middleton for more information on 01733 866445 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or just turn up on the day!
