Amber Valley Plans to Plant 2500-500 Trees Per Year

Amber Valley Borough Council is proposing to plant between 2500 and 500 trees per year over the next 5-010 years as part of its ‘Forest for the Future’ initiative. The council’s plans involve 40 acres of woodland in locations around the borough. The council believes that the tree planting programme would be capable of sequestering 6,400 tonnes of carbon, the equivalent of six years of the council’s carbon emissions. A full list of the locations throughout the borough is available here:
