1. Tree Strategy 2021-2026

Arising from our declaration of a Climate and Ecological Emergency, we have developed  a tree strategy.

As a landowner we manage a significant tree stock in its national and local nature Reserves, woodlands, SANGS (suitable alternative natural green spaces), parks and open spaces, cemeteries and closed churchyards.

This strategy sets out how we will work with our partners to drive community action to increase tree canopy cover and quality in Teignbridge, focus on ‘the right tree in the right place’, promote best practice in terms of tree management and increase local engagement and interest in trees in their area.

The strategy also recognises the increasingly important role trees play in mitigating the effects of climate change, flood amelioration and pollution control.
