The Woodland Trust has worked with a partnership of local councils, community groups and schools to plant a total of 4,000 trees through their Emergency Tree Fund. The latest planting took place at Jawbones Field in Dartmouth, where 400 trees have been planted to commemorate the Queen’s platinum jubilee, as well as to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Woodland Trust.
The Jawbones planting included a wide variety of tree species with some flowering trees chosen for their abundance of nectar and pollen. Supporting nature recovery and increasing biodiversity are a crucial aspect of mitigating the worst effects of climate change. Trees also remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
