Forest of Avon


Outside the AONBs, the West of England (Avon) lies within the Forest of Avon, one of national programme of 12 Community Forests in England. The creation of the Community Forest is set out in a Forest Plan, approved by national and local partners, supported by Planning Guidance, adopted by the four West of England authorities.

Free Trees for Schools

We are growing the range of free tree services that we can offer schools in Bristol, Avon and adjoining areas, including fruit trees, tree packs and trees + support. We would like to thank Western Power Distribution, the Woodland Trust and Defra for their support/ partnership which has made this possible.

 

Using iTree to Make a Compelling Case for Your Trees

iTreeDo you want to make as strong as possible case for trees in your area? (e.g. North Somerset’s trees deliver £1.7 million worth of pollution management a year).

Jon Clark ran the North Somerset iTree project, (the first in the UK to use community volunteers) and can use this experience to guide you through all aspects of the iTree model and delivering an effective survey. See our iTree guide for more information.
