The final tree in 50,000 new ones for Sheffield has been planted.

It is part of a Sheffield Council scheme to create the ‘next generation of woodland.’

The last planting took place at Longley Park with students from Sheffield College’s Hillsborough campus.

Tim Shortland, council community forestry manager, said: “These 17 new woodlands will maintain the city’s woodland legacy.”
