As part of plans to tackle climate change, town and parish councils here in East Suffolk are being encouraged to plant trees in their communities.

Since declaring a climate emergency in 2019, East Suffolk Council has established an Environment Task Group which meets quarterly to consider what action needs to be taken to meet the Council’s challenging target of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

One of the group’s first initiatives is to enable town and parish councils to plant trees in their local area.

Any town or parish council, or community group, wishing to plant trees is encouraged to
contact their district councillor to determine whether there is any East Suffolk-owned land which would be suitable for planting. If land is not suitable for tree planting, it may be possible for the land to be allocated for rewilding or to become a wildflower meadow.

Tree planting schemes can be supported through East Suffolk councillors’ individual Enabling Communities Budgets, with trees available through third party organisations. 
Just go online to: eastsuffolk.gov.uk for further details of the schemes.
