Tree Plant Fund open for applications

Online applications are now open for our new Tree Planting Fund, aimed at delivering tree and hedge planting schemes across Central Bedfordshire.

Town and parish councils, local voluntary and community organisations, schools and other groups can apply for funding (or match funding). Projects can vary in size, from a minimum of five trees upwards, to larger areas of new woodland.

Planting more trees and hedgerows represents one of the key ways in which the climate challenge can be met. It will help increase biodiversity and mitigate other environmental issues such as flooding and air pollution. In addition to this, it will help create a nicer environment that benefits communities in many ways.

More information, including guidance notes and an application form, can be found on our website. The scheme closes on 28 February 2021.
