A tree for every child

Bradford Council’s innovative Tree for Every Child initiative which aimed to plant 55,000 trees in schools and green spaces– one for every primary school child in the district – exceeded its target by 5000 trees. Council investment and partnership working helped to engage 90 schools, hundreds of volunteers, and thousands of pupils, attracting national attention including on BBC’s Countryfile and helping Bradford secure a place in the Tree Cities of the World global network.
