Saving Devon’s Treescapes

Devon County Council is providing support for the national lottery funded ‘Saving Devon’s Treescapes’ project, which is engaging local communities around the county in planting and nurturing trees to replace those lost to ash dieback. The intention is to secure the future for Devon’s precious treescapes through the planting of 250,000 trees over the next five years. This initiative is being led by the Devon Wildlife Trust on behalf of the Devon Ash Dieback Resilience Forum.

We are one of the organisations that has signed-up to the Forum’s ‘3-2-1 tree replacement principle’. This promotes the planting of 3 new trees for each felled mature ash, two if semi-mature and a single replacement for young trees. In addition to its support for ‘Saving Devon’s Treescapes’, the County Council is also exploring opportunities for further tree planting on its own land, following some initial planting undertaken on a County Farm Estate holding in the Exe Valley last December.

More information on can be found here.
