Woodlands for Life

Woodland is becoming increasingly recognised as a valuable asset in the fight against climate change, in providing habitat to encourage biodiversity and in helping to secure our own wellbeing.

The Northern Forest project, announced by the government in 2018, is set to increase our woodland cover by one third, with 50 million trees to be planted over the next 25 years, growing and linking existing community forests from Liverpool to Hull. 

It will bring many benefits to the Harrogate District, which sits centrally within the White Rose Forest - one of the existing community forests.


This event provides an opportunity to learn more about the Northern Forest project itself and the many benefits it will bring to the Harrogate District.
