Thank you to all the Ruddington residents who applied to Rushcliffe Borough Council for free trees for their gardens or communities earlier this year – it now means over 6,000 have been given away in the last two years!
Residents, town and parish councils and groups will now be collecting the trees in the coming weeks to make their properties and communities even greener.
The trees distributed since the start of the campaign in 2018 are now growing well in many parts of the Borough. It’s part of our strategy to provide sustainable environments in line with the local significant housing and employment growth in the next decade.
Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Community and The Environment, Cllr Abby Brennan, said: “We are delighted to have run this scheme for a third year after a great response from residents and groups.
“They have shown wonderful enthusiasm in collecting and planting thousands of these free trees and we thank them for their continued support in making Rushcliffe a great and greener place to live.
“We hope that by increasing the number of trees in the Borough, our green environments will grow alongside our communities, improving the quality of life for both current and future residents.”
