Last month Defra announced that the White Rose Forest partnership would be supporting the Broughton Sanctuary at Broughton Hall Estate, inspired by CLA member Roger Tempest. It is to become the largest tree planting scheme in England this year with 160 hectares of trees planted between December 2020 and April 2021.
The project is funded by the Government’s Nature For Climate fund via Trees for Climate, a £12.1m programme of woodland creation this planting season led by England’s Community Forests. Once established, the woodland will also store significant quantities of carbon and help deliver the Government’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions in the UK by 2050.
