Burton Tree Project
Stapenhill Parish is part of the National Forest and yet is not overly endowed with tree cover. Burton itself has a much lower density of tree cover than many other towns in England. In order to redress this deficit in the Burton area the ESBC has initiated a scheme, known as the Burton Tree Project, which seeks to improve the overall tree cover. This will have the potential to improve air quality, enhance biodiversity, reduce the impact of climate change and make our urban areas a more pleasant place to live. Volunteers are required to help with planting young trees as part of the Tree Project, and planting will take place adjacent to St.Peter's Church between 12 – 2pm on: Tuesday 25th & Thursday 27th February and Friday 6th March. For more information contact Paul Steed at the Greenhouse Centre, Stapenhill Road, Tel: 01283 508385.
