Bristol to get 500 new trees a year as part of the Urban Green initiative

OVER the coming year, 500 new trees will be planted across Bristol as part of a new Urban Green initiative.

The new initiative, launched this week by delivery and collection service Velopost, is hoping to make the city a greener place by increasing its population of indigenous trees, planting 500 trees each year. According to Urban Green, more trees provide a greener landscape to absorb pollution, reduce flooding, and reduce the impact of temperature extremes.

Gus Hoyt, Green Party cabinet councillor, attended the initiative launch this week. He said: "Trees play an active role in flood mitigation. This is of greater importance as our weather patterns are already changing, leading to more increased rainfall. It's great that green-minded businesses such as Velopost are focusing investment in planting more trees in the city region and we very much look forward to working with them as we approach Green Capital year."
