The Chief Parks and Countryside Officer gave authority to spend £650k to establish the Woodland Creation Initiative across the city. This is based on the cost of £3 per tree and the delivery of the ambition to plant 50 hectares, 220,000 trees per year for 25 years planting 5.8 million trees in total.
