Rushcliffe based residents, town and parish councils and groups can make their properties and communities even greener by applying for free trees for a third year running.

Over 5,700 trees have been distributed by Streetwise Environmental since the start of the campaign in 2018 and crab apple and hazel trees are again available without charge.

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Community and The Environment Cllr Debbie Mason said: “We are delighted to be running this scheme again, after a brilliant response from residents and groups in previous years.

“They have shown wonderful enthusiasm in collecting and planting thousands of these free trees and we thank them for their continued support to making Rushcliffe a great and greener place to live.

“We hope that by increasing the number of trees in the Borough, our green environments will grow alongside our communities, improving the quality of life for both current and future residents.”
