At Cambria we encourage all our staff to get involved with charities and support initiatives that help the local community. On this occasion we worked together with Coed Caerdydd to plant trees on Monday 13th March at Adamscroft Place open space, Adamsdown.
Coed Caerdydd is a 10 year programme to increase the number of trees in Cardiff, supporting the city’s One Planet climate change strategy. With the bulk of their funding coming from the Welsh Government’s Enabling Natural Resources grant. As well as from Cardiff Council, Woodland Trust, and Trees for Cities.
Coed Caerdydd’s project aims are to:
- Protect our current and new trees against climate impacts and diseases
- Plant new trees in the right places for nature and communities
- Raise awareness about the importance of trees
- Provide opportunities for everyone to help make Cardiff a greener and healthier place to live.
- Train and work with communities
Their ultimate goal is to plant new trees and care for existing woodlands, with the help of communities and volunteers like us at Cambria to increase coverage across the Cardiff city from 18.9% to 25%.
The first phase of the programme is now coming to an end in summer 2023. With Jon, Lucy and Dan relishing the idea of having taken part in such a great opportunity to create beautiful environments for people and nature, as well as contributing towards Cardiff’s climate emergency response.
