North East Community Forest: Annual report

North East Community Forest: Annual report

Almost 80,000 trees were planted across the North East in our first planting season, helping to tackle the climate crisis, wildlife loss and bring people closer to nature.

A total of 62.16 hectares of land were covered by the North East Community Forest during 2021 to 2022 – well exceeding the initial target of 25 hectares.

The 79,503 new trees, 16 hectares of open space and 3,215 linear metres of hedgerows will capture 19,282 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

When fully planted, the trees, woodlands and hedgerows are expected to capture 155,100 tonnes of carbon dioxide, equivalent to the emissions from the energy needs of 30,000 homes in a year.
