Trees and biodiversity

Broadland and South Norfolk are home to a wide range of plants and animals.

Trees, woodland and other green spaces are hugely beneficial in a number of ways:

  • sequestering carbon - they help fight climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide
  • increasing biodiversity - they are home to a wealth of wildlife
  • wellbeing and community benefits - they absorb pollutants so can improve air quality and they are good for our health and wellbeing in general
