More trees planted to boost Dronfield wildlife project

Have your say

Another 50 trees are to be planted as part of a woodland scheme in Dronfield.

More than 900 trees were planted in the Lea Brook Valley wood area to improve the biodiversity of wildlife but some were damaged by weather before they could grow.

Yorkshire Water has now agreed to plant a further 50 trees in partnership with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and Dronfield Parish Council.

Geoff Lomas, recreation manager, said: “We are pleased to contribute to environmental and community regeneration.”
