A project for people, for wildlife, for our environment and most of all for our future.
What is it?
- It’s a project for people, for wildlife, for our environment and most of all for our future
- Plant Pembrokeshire will create a woodland by the people of Pembrokeshire, for the people of Pembrokeshire
- A tree will be planted for every child born to a Pembrokeshire family.
- We are living in a time of climate and nature emergency. Public organisations have a duty to minimise their impact on the environment, to improve the environment and to safeguard it for the future. As citizens we all have a responsibility to take care of the environment for future generations.
- Pembrokeshire County Council have donated a block of land for tree planting, sourced trees, planned the woodland
- Hywel Dda Health Board are working with new parents to encourage sustainable parenting choices and promote the benefits of time together in nature
- Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and Tir Coed are working with volunteers and people from other organisations to plant the trees.
Plant Pembrokeshire will:
- Improve water quality of the Cleddau catchment by soaking up run-off, reducing soil erosion and reducing flooding
- Soak up carbon emissions and improve air quality
- Enhance and protect archaeological monuments.
- Increase biodiversity of former farmland by providing habitat and woodland cover for different species
- Connect areas of woodland, creating wildlife corridors.
- Provide opportunities for people to improve their physical health through walking, tree planting
- Provide opportunities for people to improve their mental wellbeing through being in nature, volunteering, learning and sharing with others
- Provide opportunities for parents to connect with their children, with nature and with broader sustainable parenting issues
- Provide a sense of community, shared endeavour and positive action for the future.
- An example of how public bodies, private companies and individuals can all work together for the benefit of people, wildlife and the wider environment
- Create a space for our children and grandchildren to enjoy, alongside wildlife for many years to come.
