Our Environment

Our natural environment works hard to capture our harmful emissions and turn them into the oxygen we breathe. We’re working hard to ensure our county is as green as possible to help us on our journey to net zero.

The Council launched a new initiative in August 2020 to help residents, schools and community groups plant more trees by offering 15,000 free tree saplings to everyone based in Northumberland.   This is part of the Council's wider ambition to help tackle climate change and make Northumberland a cleaner and greener county for all over the next ten years.

Please note: Due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, we are unable to offer any further collection dates for the 2020 Free Tree scheme. Instead, anyone who was successfully allocated a tree but has yet to receive it, will be added to the 2021 scheme. You will be contacted with further details in due course.

All remaining tree saplings will be planted across Northumberland to help combat climate change and make our county cleaner and greener than ever before.
