We’re planting more than 14,000 tree whips across Brighton & Hove as part of our work to regenerate woodlands that have been devastated by ash dieback.
This is part of our Ash Dieback Regeneration Plan, which hopes to restore key woodland areas and enhance the city’s woodlands for the future.
Work will begin in Coldean where 2,640 tree whips will be planted over a 5-day period from 23 January 2023.
The tree whips will be planted with 1m to 2.5m spacing and with tubex tree protection and a wooden stake to support.
Replanting will continue over a period of 3 months at sites across the city in:
- Wild Park
- Coney Wood
- Abinger Woods
- ‘Three Cornered Copse’ in Hove.
We’re planning to plant a further 70,000 tree whips in 2024.
