More than 19,000 trees have been planted across Redcar and Cleveland this winter as the Council initiates a drive to create a greener landscape.

The mixed native trees will help increase biodiversity in the area and support the Council’s plans to become a carbon neutral borough by 2030.

The trees in question are being planted at 25 sites, ranging from 2,000 in Whale Hill, 2,000 at Pit Park, Boosbeck, and 1,000 in New Marske woods. Planting trees helps to remove pollution from the air as well as making our urban and rural environment a more green and pleasant place for everyone to enjoy.
