Forest of Bradford

Forest of Bradford is an exciting initiative to increase woodland cover throughout the district in partnership with local communities, organisations, volunteers and businesses. The project was set up in 1998 with the aim of establishing a sustainable wooded landscape in both the rural and urban areas of the district.

Over the last eight years Forest of Bradford and its partners have planted over 250,000 broad-leaved trees at over 250 different sites in partnership with a wide cross-section of the community. In order to increase woodland cover in Bradford to something like the national average we need to plant another 380 hectares; equivalent to 700,000 trees. In addition to new planting, the project offers advice on existing woodland management and can help draw in grant aid for this management.
