Eryri’s National Park Authority and The Woodland Trust have initiated a two-stage process to develop a Tree and Woodland Strategy in response to a study on the carbon footprint of UK National Parks.
The strategy aims to provide guidance and a vision for tree planting initiatives, considering the ecological, social, and cultural aspects of the region. The Authority recognizes the need to balance carbon reduction and environmental preservation with the needs of local communities. By adopting a co-design approach, involving stakeholders and incorporating local knowledge, the strategy aims to be comprehensive, effective, and sustainable in managing trees and woodlands in the National Park. The goal is to ensure that tree planting initiatives contribute positively to climate goals and the wellbeing of Eryri and its residents.
