The council has launched a new initiative to help increase the number of trees that are planted in Chichester District. 

This is part of the council's wider ambition to tackle climate change and support the district's wildlife.

There are a number of different schemes available nationwide which provide free or subsidised trees to those individuals or organisations that are looking to plant them. The aim of the council's new initiative is to support applicants through the process of applying for these trees.

Funding and/or trees are available to:

  • individuals;
  • homeowners;
  • schools;
  • community groups;
  • private landowners; and
  • tenant farmers.
