It's been a busy 2014 for The Mersey Forest team, and as autumn approaches, we're looking forward to an action-packed tree planting season.


In January we launched our guiding strategic document, The Mersey Forest Plan. The development of the Plan, which is recognised as a legal consideration by the government, brought together people from across our broad and diverse partnership to form a shared vision of greener, well-wooded Merseyside and North Cheshire. Its launch coincided with the Forest passing its nine-millionth tree mark - a key achievement for The Mersey Forest Partnership.


It's also been great to see the work of the partnership recognised at an international and national level this year with awards and commendations for the Forest Plan, our work in woodland management and community engagement, and with Mersey Forest team member Susannah Gill awarded European Young Forester of the Year.


We also recognise that resources for projects and programmes remains tight or is getting tighter. The Partnership continues to look for ways to broaden our funding base and continue the work to get "more from trees".

Every £1 invested
creates £6 impact

The Mersey Forest continues to provide great value for money. For every £1 invested in the Forest in 2013/14, we continue to deliver £6 of projects in Merseyside and North Cheshire, thanks to the way that The Mersey Forest team levers in extra funds.


20,500 trees planted to increase the area's tree cover.

1,471 street trees planted to brighten our neighbourhoods.

12,471 people engaged in The Mersey Forest's activities across the Forest area.
