The locations where thousands of new trees will be planted in Cardiff


The locations across Cardiff where thousands of trees will be planted over the next six months have been revealed.


The new trees are part of Cardiff Council’s Coed Caerdydd project to increase tree canopy in the city from 18.9% to 25% and will be planted with the help of community volunteers at more than 150 different locations, most of which were suggested by members of the public, community groups and local ward councillors.

The majority of the trees will be native species such as Oak, Birch, Rowan and Alder but some ornamental trees, selected for their ability to withstand the impacts of climate change will also be planted. The trees will range in size from small saplings to larger trees and fruiting trees like Apple, Pear, Plum and Cherry will be planted at a number of suitable sites.

Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Events, Cllr Jennifer Burke-Davies, said: “In the last planting season our amazing Coed Caerdydd volunteers donated more than 1,800 hours of their time to help get the first planting season of our urban forest project off to a great start, planting a grand total of 20,000 trees – an area about the size of 15 football pitches.

“This season we’re looking to plant even more trees than we did during the last, but we can’t do that alone and I’d encourage anybody with an interest in helping make our air cleaner and our city greener to sign up to one of our community planting events.”
