In May, the Clyde Climate Forest project was officially launched. The project aims to plant 18 million trees in both urban and rural parts of the Glasgow City Region over the next decade.
Working to the principle of 'the right tree in the right place', the project team aims to plant trees in areas of deprivation, former coalmining sites, vacant and derelict land, urban streets and other civic places.
As part of the long-term plans, the project team at Clyde Climate Forest is calling on community groups and land managers to help them identify places to plant new trees, or replace ones that have been lost in the past.
Work is also beginning to encourage smaller land owners and local authorities to gear up for tree planting. They are being offered free woodland assessments to help them identify potential new areas to be greened up with trees.
