This 3 year project, starting October 2009 ending October 2012 will support community buildings across West Yorkshire and the South Pennine Leader Area to adopt good energy management. The programme offers free energy and water audits to community buildings, training on energy management and capital grants in the South Pennine Leader Area.
Forest of Bradford is an exciting initiative to increase woodland cover throughout the district in partnership with local communities, organisations, volunteers and businesses. The project was set up in 1998 with the aim of establishing a sustainable wooded landscape in both the rural and urban areas of the district.
Over the last eight years Forest of Bradford and its partners have planted over 250,000 broad-leaved trees at over 250 different sites in partnership with a wide cross-section of the community. In order to increase woodland cover in Bradford to something like the national average we need to plant another 380 hectares; equivalent to 700,000 trees. In addition to new planting, the project offers advice on existing woodland management and can help draw in grant aid for this management.
For a gift with a difference that will last for generations and benefit our local environment why not 'Gift a Tree'. For just £10 we will plant a native broad leaf tree as part of a new woodland within Bradford district. We will ensure the establishment of your tree with a three year maintenance programme.
You will receive a card to mark your contribution to which you can add a personal message. You can even come and plant the tree yourself on one of our community tree planting days during Winter.
Why Gift a Tree?
Trees provide… new wildlife habitats, attractive green spaces, cleaner air, employment opportunities, a source of renewable energy and reduce flooding risks. They also create a sense of well being. How many gifts offer all this? Forest of Bradford is an innovative community woodland project, working to increase woodland/tree cover in the Bradford District.
If you would like to Gift a Tree for Christmas, a birthday, wedding, anniversary, bereavement or any other event either visit our website or call or email us for further details.
