  • Community forest will be planted along a 56-mile stretch of the Cumbrian coast
  • Cumbria is home to 370 acres of trees, which equals 210 football pitches.
  • Our ultimate aim is to establish at minimum 12,355 acres of woodlands in the UK

To combat global warming, a community forest will be planted on a 56-mile stretch along the Cumbrian Coast.

Some 370 acres – around 210 football pitches – of trees, woodlands and forests will be planted there over the next five years.

The ultimate aim is to create a minimum of 12,355 acres of new woodland along this stretch of Cumbrian coast over the next 25 years – the size of almost 7,000 football pitches.

Cumbria County Council will deliver the forest to the four districts of Barrow and South Lakeland. This partnership includes the Forestry Commission and Cumbria Woodlands.

The community forest allows locals to have fresh air and to experience nature. It also gives them the ability to participate in decision-making about land use and management.

With the Tree Council’s Be A Tree Angel campaign, the Daily Mail supports tree planting. 

It raised £1.5million to plant orchards, trees and hedgerows across the UK.

Paul Nolan is chairman of England’s Community Forests organization. He stated: “This new forest will be a critical role in tackling local impacts of climate changes and will support Community Forests’ mission of increasing tree planting over the next five year, as part of Government’s journey to net zero.”
