Surrey County Council has launched an online map to show the location of trees and hedges planted in Surrey as part of their 1.2 million trees initiative. Launched in 2019, the campaign aims to facilitate the planting of 1.2 million trees in Surrey, one for every resident, by 2030 and supports the council’s aim to be net carbon zero by 2050. Since the launch of the initiative, over 40,000 trees and 6,000 hedge plants have been planted in Surrey.
The new online map aims to track progress of the campaign by showing residents where trees and hedges have been planted within the county. The interactive tool shows the location and quantity planted, along with additional information such as who planted the tree, the species of tree and the date of planting. Find out more here.
