Trees are vital in the fight against climate change. They absorb carbon dioxide, improve air quality, cool the warming planet, fight flooding, nurture wildlife and make landscapes more resilient.
In 2019, Newark and Sherwood District Council joined other local authorities across the country in declaring a climate emergency. As part of this, the Council are undertaking a major programme of tree planting projects and aim to plant more than 10,000 trees across the district.
