One year on from Storm Arwen, we’re taking a look back at the impact of the storm, the work that’s been undertaken by our rangers to repair the damage.
Through our partnership with Ringtons Plc we’re planting hundreds of trees in Harbottle Park this autumn, expanding our contribution to the North East Community Forest.
To make sure Newcastle’s parks continue to be safe places for people to visit, we will be carrying out further works to trees across the city as part of our tree risk management and wider routine maintenance programme.
Notice of Works: From the week of 29 August, we will be carrying out work in Walker Park which is expected to take around one month.
From Tuesday 19 April we will be carrying out refurbishment works at the edge of the lake in Leazes Park to begin to restore it to it’s former glory.
After over 60 working days on the site, we are delighted to announce that we have now felled the trees which were identified as health and safety risks, which means that we are able to reopen Havannah Three Hills Nature Reserve for everyone to enjoy.
This Saturday, 26 March, marks the start of the final planting project which will see us surpass our target of planting 5,000 trees across the city by 2026!
Once again Newcastle’s parks and green spaces, like many areas across the North East of England and the east coast of Scotland, have been battered by storms over the weekend with both Storm Malik and Corrie impacting on our green spaces, just two months after the devastation of Storm Arwen.
