Welcome

The widespread media coverage of ash dieback disease has once again highlighted the huge importance that people place upon their trees and woodlands. Thankfully the disease has not been found in the wider environment in the North West as yet, and the public's desire to protect their woodlands will be an important asset in remaining vigilant (see our ash dieback Q&A for more).

 

The Independent Panel on Forestry has made clear its view that the nation needs more and better woodlands for the benefit of people, the economy and the environment. As we await the government's response to the Panel's recommendations in the New Year, we look forward to an action-packed winter here in The Mersey Forest – planting thousands of trees to transform neighbourhoods across the local area as part of The Big Tree Plant.

2011/12 in figures
Every £1 invested
creates £10 impact

The Mersey Forest continues to provide great value for money, especially in the current economic climate. Local authorities gained £10 worth of green projects for every £1 they invested in The Mersey Forest in 2011/12.

 

Our seven local authorities' combined annual contribution of £167,481 led to the delivery of £1.5 million of projects right here on our doorsteps thanks to the way The Mersey Forest Team levers in extra funds.

Highlights

64,000 trees planted to increase the area's tree cover.

1,585 street trees planted to brighten our neighbourhoods.

5,000 hectares of habitat managed to secure its long-term future.
