300 Trees To Be Planted In Cardiff’s Parks And Streets
300 new trees are being planted in Cardiff’s parks and streets this January as part of the City of Cardiff Council’s annual tree planting programme.
Thanks to support from Cardiff Civic Society’s Tree Canopy Cardiff project, Trees for Cities, Barcham’s Trees, Powering Pollinators, Veolia, as well as members of the public funding memorial trees in memory of loved ones, 200 trees will be planted on streets in the south-eastern area of the city whilst 100 new trees will put down roots in the city’s parks.
Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Bob Derbyshire, said: “Trees have been shown to have a positive impact on health, wellbeing and quality of life. They also provide important habitats for pollinators, so planting 300 specimens that will help sustain the vitality and diversity of the city’s tree stock is a great way to start the New Year.”
To help future proof the city against potential threats to its tree population the planting programme will see a wide and diverse selection of trees planted, many of them native species.
