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!
Newcastle’s parks and green spaces, like many areas across the North East of England and the east coast of Scotland, have felt the devastating impact of Storm Arwen.
We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with Hay & Kilner Law Firm, who are celebrating their roots by planting a long-term legacy in our parks on their 75th anniversary.
Today (22nd April) we marked Earth Day by planting the first tree in Traidcraft Exchange’s new Plant an Acre initiative, a projects which aims to see many thousands of trees planted across the UK and Tanzania.
We are about to undertake the next phase of our tree maintenance programme. We have carried out the most urgent works in recent months but there is still some work to be done in order to ensure the health and safety of our parks.
With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, Urban Green Newcastle is re-starting many of its maintenance programmes that had to be put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Trees, like all other living things, can suffer from disease and unfortunately nearly 100 of our trees have been found to have hazardous levels of decay, requiring major works or removal.
