As a charity with big goals, we appreciate the need for providing solid data about the impact of all of our work. This is a current focus for us as we deliver our Trees for Climate large scale planting programme and now start to implement the Forest of Avon Plan with our partners across the region.
In summer 2021, we released the England's Community Forest Trees for Climate report for Year 1 showing metrics for the planting carried out, in partnership, from Dec 2020 - March 2021 - 15.5 hectares of new trees and woodland in the West of England. As a Community Forest, our focus is not just on carbon, but on all of the benefits provided by trees and the metrics reflect this. See our Trees for Climate pages for more details.
It is vital that we measure immediate results, monitor and report on projects long term and record where we are in terms of goals and targets. Then we can make sure we adapt to changing needs, create thriving new woodlands and trees and meet the needs of our population.
