A national charity initiative to plant, nurture and protect trees has been backed by Mid Suffolk District Council.
At a meeting on Thursday, December 21, the council agreed to sign up to the Woodland Trust’s Charter for Trees, Woods and People.
The charter’s ten principles include planting more trees, a commitment to protecting irreplaceable trees and woods, sustaining landscapes rich in wildlife and using trees as the inspiration for cultural projects.
Other pledges include planning greener local landscapes and combating threats to the ecosystems which each tree supports.
Councillor David Burn, cabinet member for the environment, said: “Trees surely stand at the heart of why we all enjoy living in one of the most rural parts of the country.
