From Rivers to Woods
TCV, Hull City Council and HEYwoods have joined forces to create new woodland and hedgerows in Hull, supported by the Environment Agency through their Tree Mitigation Programme.
Two projects – at Clough Road Community Playing Fields and Ings Primary School – have seen over 4,500 native trees and shrubs planted to create new shelterbelt woodland and over half a kilometre of species-rich hedgerow.
At Ings Primary School, TCV joined children, parents and staff to plant a new hedgerow and trees around the perimeter of the site. At Clough Road Community Playing Fields, Hull City Council joined forces with TCV to establish a new shelterbelt woodland at the site, and a new native hedgerow along Clough Road.
The work was part-funded by the Environment Agency who supported the tree planting to offset the impact of tree works being carried out along riversides as part of flood alleviation work in the Yorkshire and North-East area.
