We are delighted to announce that we will be teaming up with the WHITE ROSE FOREST to PLANT A NEW TREE FOR EVERY HOUSE WE SELL IN 2022. The White Rose Forest aims to plant seven million trees across North and West Yorkshire by 2025.
The White Rose Forest is the community forest for North and West Yorkshire, working in partnership with councils, as well as landowners, businesses and communities to plant more trees across the region and improve our natural environment.
The partnership is helping to protect our existing trees and planting millions of new trees in our urban centres and countryside that will help manage flood risk, combat climate change, create jobs and provide happier and healthier places for us all to live, work in and enjoy.
With the help of landowners and farmers, the White Rose Forest Action Plan 2021-25 sets out how tree planting can be accelerated across the region over the next four years to build up to a yearly target of around 3000 hectares per year from 2025 onwards. If we increase woodland cover from 11% to 19% by 2050 we would be able to potentially absorb 50% of all residual carbon emitted in North and West Yorkshire.
