The Pennine Lancashire Treescapes Project (PLanT)

This new project will plant 35,000 trees to create 95 new micro-woodlands across Pennine Lancashire in the winter of 2021/22.

PLanT is a partnership between Blackburn with Darwen, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle and Rossendale Councils, the Ribble Rivers Trust and Prospects Foundation and is supported by £160,000 from the Forestry Commission and £11,000 from Trees for Cities.

Here in Burnley, volunteer groups such as Trees for Burnley will help Council staff to plant 45 new woodlands with 16,000 mixed native tree species.

Community planting days are being organised to enable local residents to help plant the trees, which is great for boosting physical and mental wellbeing, meeting new people, as well as doing something great for the environment!

To find out opportunities to plant trees near where you live, visit: (Link to follow). You can comment on the proposals and suggest sites for tree planting, please email greenspaces@burnley.gov.uk

All the woodlands trees are being planted in public greenspaces and, in addition to the visual benefits, the trees will also help to reduce the impacts of air pollution and risk of flooding, absorb carbon dioxide, improve river water quality and create new wildlife habitats

We will be organising community and school planting days, so look out for information from your school or search ‘Burnley trees’ and you will be able to find out the dates and places where tree planting is taking place.
 
We look forward to seeing you!
