More than 5,000 free trees to be distributed across Rushcliffe thanks to Rushcliffe Borough Council's environmental campaign
More than 5,000 free trees will be distributed to householders and parishes as part of the council's environmental campaign.
The summer months saw over 2,500 households in the Rushcliffe Borough Council's successfully apply for up to two free crab apple or rowan trees and numerous parishes for up to ten trees.
The initiative forms part of the authority’s strategy to provide further sustainable environment across communities in the borough with the chosen tree species native to the borough.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s executive manager for communities Dave Mitchell said: “We were delighted with the response.
“There was also good interest in our tree warden scheme to protect and help trees to flourish in our towns and villages, so as ever we’re really pleased with Rushcliffe residents’ commitment to the environment.
“We hope that by increasing the number of trees in the Borough, as our communities grow, our green environments will continue to do so too and improve the quality of life for current and future residents.”
