LI NW present Landscapes Beyond COP26 – City of Trees with Pete Stringer


The presentation will explore the varied work of City of Trees one of 13 Community Forests in England. This will cover a range of tree planting and woodland management work as well specific projects that have a climate resilience focus such as NFM and SuDS. A key element of CoT’s work is spatial planning for tree planting to identify where tree planting can provide the most benefit not least of all from a climate resilience perspective. The session will also highlight the regulatory processes that must be followed for tree planting both inside and outside of our urban centres.
