White Rose Forest Tree Planting Consultation

Working in partnership with the White Rose Forest, Harrogate Borough Council have identified two areas in the district where additional tree planting can increase the canopy cover (increasing carbon capture) and biodiversity. These areas will have a variety of planting densities to create woodlands as well as areas of specific interest as shown on the attached plans. Opinions are being sought from the local community about these two planting schemes and feedback is welcome.

The two areas identified for additional tree planting in the 2021/2022 planting season are Bilton Fields in Harrogate and Conyngham Hall in Knaresborough. In total, it is planned to increase the tree canopy cover on 17 hectares across the two sites by planting approximately 1,800 trees/whips.

Please take a few minutes and add your voice to this public consultation, which will close on 7 November 2021.


Plans showing the proposed areas can be seen below.
