Global Releaf Search

National Urban Forestry Unit

Year Planted: 1994
Trees Planted: 9,615
Location: United Kingdom

Tree plantings of over 9,500 trees were conducted on four school sites through a partnership between the National Urban Forestry Unit and American Forests. The plantings were designed to re-green communities and increase native broadleaf tree population in a more urban setting. The project was a joint effort between the school community and local tree experts. The ultimate goal, beyond the educational and direct ecological benefit, is to create a wildlife corridor by connecting the planting sites with other forested areas. Plantings sites are located in areas viewed as barren, where public apathy has led to vandalism and general disrespect for the environment. The trees should give the community renewed interested in and hope for these areas.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
