Amber Valley Borough Council Cabinet to consider tree planting project

by Amber Valley Info on Friday 29 November 2019

Around 16 hectares of new forest could be planted in Amber Valley after local people reacted favourably to the borough council’s Forest for the Future proposals.

When the council’s cabinet meets on 4 December it will consider approving the following sites for new tree planting.

In July, the council declared a climate emergency which recognises the need to make the authority carbon-neutral by 2030, to assist in preventing catastrophic climate change. Tree planting is widely recognised as an effective means of carbon capture to mitigate existing carbon emissions.

An online public consultation on the tree planting proposals took place from 27 September to 25 October. Of the 44 responses received 42 (or 95%) supported the proposal, with many comments received that people would like to see even more tree planting in the future.

It is estimated that there are approximately 23,500 young people aged below 18, living in Amber Valley. As the future beneficiaries of the tree planting it has also been proposed that the council establishes a target to plant one new tree for every young person, in establishing the Forest for the Future.
