Last December Deputy Minister Lee Waters announced that every household in Wales would be able to collect a tree for their garden or have a tree planted on their behalf. We are working with the Woodland Trust to do this. The My Tree, Our Forest campaign was launched on Feb 25th when the first 5 hubs were opened. Further details can be found via our National Forest dedicated webpage National Forest for Wales | GOV.WALES
Now we have launched an online interactive map. We would like you to help us understand where you would like to see more trees planted in your communities by dropping a pin on the map. Whilst zooming in on the map to view a locality, you can overlay the map of you area with several data layers at the click of a button. We hope this will provide some useful information. The information gathered from this will be used to see where it may be possible to plant trees and we will work with landowners to see what is allowable and possible. You can access the Map via our National Forest dedicated webpage National Forest for Wales | GOV.WALES
We will work together with landowners from cities, towns as well as rural areas to see how we can grow and develop the National Forest for Wales.
