Government awards funding to plant 50,000 trees to support net zero goal

Planting more trees is crucial in the fight against climate change as they store carbon and can help make towns and cities more resilient

A total of 13 projects have been awarded funding to plant a total of 50,000 trees across England to support the nation’s fight against climate change.

More than 22,000 large trees and 28,000 small trees will be planted in urban communities, including Middlesbrough, Slough, Northumberland, London and Cornwall.

The project will support the UK’s journey towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 as trees store carbon and can help make towns and cities more resilient.
