The scheme over the years has already seen thousands of trees planted across North West Leicestershire. The District Council once again teamed up with The National Forest Company to make our district even greener.
The offer has been available to each household and community organisation within the district and there have been four trees to choose from.
All the trees are two years old and approximately 60-90cms (2 to 3 feet) high.
Trees available this year have been:
Holly (Ilex aquifolium)
Cherry Plum (Prunus cerasifera)
Hazel (Corylus avellana)
Whitebeam (Sorbus aria)
The Hedge Fund
Are you a landowner, local group or local school and are looking to plant a new hedge? The aim is to help plant up the National Forest and provide more hedgerow corridors to help link wildlife habitats.
All the trees are two years old and approximately 60-90cms (2 to 3 feet) high. They will be supplied together with a guidance sheet on how to plant and to look after them.
Please note the Free Tree and Hedge Fund schemes are open to North West Leicestershire residents. If you live outside the district please contact your local council to see if they operate a similar scheme.
