40,000 discounted trees available as part of Norfolk's 1 Million Trees scheme

Norfolk County Council, 13 September 2023 00:00

Residents, landowners, community groups and schools in Norfolk are being encouraged to join a new push aimed at increasing the number of trees planted throughout the county.

As part of this initiative, 40,000 trees will be available to order at a reduced price offering a great opportunity for individuals and organisations to contribute to the environment and make a significant impact with each tree being 'one in a million'. Tree packs will be available at seven collection points across the county including Norwich (County Hall and Broadland Country Park), Acle, Long Stratton, Watton, Fakenham and King's Lynn.

Cllr Eric Vardy, Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste, said: "This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to do their bit to get involved, this is not only a chance to contribute to a greener and more sustainable future, but it's also an opportunity to leave a lasting impact on our beautiful county. Whether it's in your garden, local park, or even within a community space, every single tree matters.

With over 270,000 trees planted since 2019, I am proud of the progress we have made. Now, we are determined to achieve an even greater impact in the upcoming 2023/24 planting season."

Those wishing to purchase a tree pack will be able to apply online from 13 September. Packs will be ready for collection in the planting season between December 2023 - February 2024.

Once trees have been planted, we're asking people to use our online system to notify us where the tree is, so that can be counted towards our ambitious goal of planting 1 Million Trees in Norfolk over five years.
