Thursday 15 February marked the beginning of an exciting new project in Westerhope Park that will see the creation of a new ‘Tiny Forest’ in the city’s green space.
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.
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.
