Description:

Forest of Bradford works to increase woodland / tree cover throughout Bradford district in partnership with the local community.

The project was set up in 1998 to establish 480 hectares of native woodland, equivalent to one million trees. So far, 600,000 native trees / shrubs have been planted at over 350 different sites across Bradford district.

As well as planting new tress we offer advice and practical assistance with woodland management and can help raise grant funding for this work.

Forest of Bradford appreciates the support of many volunteers. We have established regular volunteer practical days with special needs groups, long-term unemployed, youth groups, schools and colleges, established environment groups and local businesses. Local schools, businesses, other organisations and individuals have helped develop and carry out the planting schemes.
