Rushcliffe residents are set to collect thousands of new trees for their homes after an overwhelming response to a campaign to breathe new life into their gardens and properties.
In August, Rushcliffe Borough Council gave all residents the chance to apply for free Field Maple and Wild Cherry trees as part of the authority’s ongoing commitment to promote sustainable environments.
Over 1,600 have been made available to successful applicants to help create greener communities as the borough’s significant housing growth emerges in the next decade.
Deputy leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council, Debbie Mason, said: “Thank you to residents for a wonderful response to this campaign and for playing their part in planting so many trees to make our communities cleaner greener for years to come.
“We hope that, as the communities at the heart of Rushcliffe continue to grow, these trees will allow green, sustainable environments to grow alongside them.”
