North Devon Council will be planting 24,000 new trees, expanding a community woodland in the Barnstaple area and fast-tracking their target to become net-zero by 2030.

This expansion will help to offset the Council’s carbon emissions, while also linking up three existing woodlands and expanding habitats available for local wildlife. The community will be able to help with the tree planting later in the year.

How is this helping Devon reach net-zero?
