The Congleton Partnership is really excited to announce a new group with the ambitious task of planting 30,000 trees in Congleton. This will help Congleton Town Council reach its target of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.
A small group has been set up under the umbrella of the Congleton Sustainability Group (CSG) with the support of Cheshire Wildlife Trust and the advice of an experienced landscape architect to plan and manage the project. We are also working with Ruth Burgess, manager of Streetscape.
Aim: Our goal is to plant 30,000 trees in the Congleton area over the next 5 years. Some of these trees will be on land owned by Cheshire East (CEC), but ultimately we hope that private landowners and individuals will get involved. In the limited time available this year before our first planting opportunity (winter 2019-2020) we have identified 3 sites.
The sites are:
- Marshall Grove play area, Mossley – 137 trees
- Padgbury Lane – 278 trees
- Quinta Play area – 182 trees
Recording Document: We aim to keep an updated record of planting / planned planting so that everyone can see where we are at versus the planned target. If anyone plants a tree to support this initiative please let us know by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
