 We have reached the target of £4000 which we initially set ourselves!! Thank you to everyone who has already contributed. However, the project remains open until October 31st and any additional money raised will go towards wild flower and bulb planting with maybe some new benches if we get enough!! So please keep sharing and encouraging your friends to donate! Thank you!!!

In these times of changing climate, trees play a vital part in maintaining the health of the planet. The City of York Council, in common with many others, has recently declared a climate emergency and their plans to counteract the effects include planting trees. Little Hob Moor is owned by the council and they are willing to plant and maintain the trees but funding is needed to buy the trees and their necessary protection.

TREES DO LOTS FOR US!

  • Improve our health by removing carbon dioxide from the environment
  • Help prevent flooding and reduce erosion
  • Increase oxygen in the air
  •  Absorb unwanted noise
  • Improve our natural surroundings
  • Help us maintain go mental health

We have volunteered to raise a target of £8000 to pay for around 40 trees and we are already half way their thanks to Dringhouses and Woodthorpe Ward Funding. The money raised will go towards

• A new glade of around 20 flowering cherry trees
• A new glade of white bark birch trees
• A row of around 8 large trees which will eventually replace the horse chestnuts
on Tadcaster Road which have a limited life span left

YOU CAN HELP BY
