Take Climate Action: Planting a Tree for Every Child

Climate Emergency. What can YOU do?

We are planting a tree for every primary school child in the Bradford district as part of our ongoing commitment to take Climate Action.  Working together with Trees for Cities, Bradford Environmental Education Services, Forest of Bradford (BEAT), Fruit Works Cooperatives, Yorgreen CIC, Town Councils and our communities, 55,000 trees will be planted over the next two years. 

Get involved

There are a number of ways for schools and families to become involved in this Climate Action:

  • Tree for Every Child Woods: a chance for schools or classes to come along and help to plant two new dedicated woods with public access.
  • School Orchard: start an orchard in your school, we will provide trees and training to fill the fruit bowl!
  • School Trees: a bundle of native trees (with support and instructions) to increase the number of trees in school grounds.
  • Take Away Trees: we will provide a limited number of smaller trees suitable to take home and plant in the garden.

To find out more and register an interest in any of the above please email climateaction@bradford.gov.uk.

Did you know?

Trees remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store the carbon in wood.  In woodlands the carbon builds up and is locked away in the soil and so helping to achieve net zero carbon.
