Westlakes Tree Planting Initiative

At the beginning of the year we set ourselves an ambitious tree planting target to improve the natural habitat and carbon capture.

BEC’s aspiration is to plant two thousand and twenty one trees in 2021 and need help from the community to make this happen.

We’re working with the Woodland Trust to source 2,500 native saplings and 90 larger ornamental trees to be planted in focal points and areas where trees have previously fallen and been removed due to age and condition.  This will encourage biodiversity, improve access routes for our red squirrel population, support our pollinators and improve carbon capture on the Park.

The first trees will be planted in February 2021 and we’ll continue planting through to April 2021 before restarting in Autumn.  We’re looking for groups of up to 6 people to take part, you’ll be provided with everything you need to leave a lasting legacy here at Westlakes Science Park, just remember your wellies!

Ready to be a part of our legacy?
