Natural Heritage Tree Project


Following a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, in September 2017 NFWI-Wales launched a two-year project to preserve, protect and plant urban trees.

Trees in Wales' town and cities have many social benefits as well as mitigating climate change. However recent studies show that 73% of urban areas in Wales have lost trees since 2010 and 7,000 trees were lost between 2006 and 2013. This project aims to help reverse this decline.

The project is engaging WI members across Wales as champions of trees in their local communities. Close to 200 WIs have registered their interest in the project and are taking part in a wide range of activities. From adopting and monitoring a tree in their area and identifying space to plant new trees, to photography and craft.

Federations across the country have been holding training days, led by project coordinators, to get members involved.

We acknowledge the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. Using the money raised through the National Lottery, the Heritage Lottery Fund aims to make a lasting difference for heritage, people and communities across the UK and help build a resilient heritage economy.
