First Tree Planted by the Baildon Tree Planting Partnership
The first tree to be planted by the new Baildon Tree Planting Partnership was planted on 27 November on land at the corner of Green Lane and Thompson Lane. Bradford Councillor Vick Jenkins was invited to plant the tree with children from Glenaire Primary School.
The Partnership has been set up by Baildon Town Council, but was instigated by a local residient - Richard Nottidge, with the aim to increase tree coverage in the Baildon area and is supported by Bradford Council, Forest of Bradford and Friends of the Earth. Trees soak up carbon dioxide and store carbon and are a vital tool in the fight to reduce carbon emissions.
Over a thousand trees will be planted in lower Baildon over the coming winter planting season. There will be a launch event at the St Hugh's Centre on the 25th of January where the community will be invited to find out more about the planting plan and, hopefully, get involved.
Cllr Alan Clubb, Chair of the Environment Committee.
