Have your say
We are becoming more aware of the vital role that trees play in making our environment liveable. The Council’s One Planet Strategy includes an aim to increase tree canopy from 18.9% to 25% by 2030. In order to do this, we have established a long term tree planting programme for the city called Coed Caerdydd.
We carried out a citizen’s survey in autumn 2019 to find out how much trees impact on your life; whether you are aware of the increased tree planting that has taken place; and what tree planting you would like to see in the future.
The information you provided helped us to secure just short of £1m in funding from Welsh Government and the Woodland Trust to launch our Coed Caerdydd programme and we will begin tree planting across the city over the next two planting seasons (up to June 2023).
We would like to find out if citizen’s views on tree planting have changed since 2019; particularly since the Covid-19 pandemic, the publication of the city’s One Planet Strategy and the declaration of the climate emergency.
