In response to public demand, Cornwall Council, in conjunction with The Woodland Trust, has launched its plan to create a Forest for Cornwall.
The plans aim to add 8,000 hectares of new woodland and canopy coverage across the whole region.
As reported by the Cornish Guardian, the first 150 trees were planted last month by schoolchildren and volunteers in Saltash. This is just the tip of the iceberg as the forest plan aims to plant 10,000,000 trees in both urban and rural locations as well as increasing the coverage of hedgerows. When completed, the new ‘forest’ should collectively cover approximately 2% of the region.
This ambitious project is part of the council’s aim for Cornwall to become carbon-neutral by 2030.
