We are working with city partners to plant one million native trees across Belfast by 2035.
This project, which launched in National Tree Week, is one of our major programmes to support climate adaptation across the city and it will make a substantial contribution to the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs’ Northern Ireland-wide Forest of our Future (link opens in new window) initiative.
By planting one million trees, we are aiming to:
Belfast One Million Trees was inspired by an original idea from the Belfast Metropolitan Residents Group and it is a collaboration between public, private and voluntary sector partners.
We have currently planted 63,000 trees in Belfast and our city regions.
Watch this animation for a short summary on this project and our joint goal.
Although our planting will start on approved partner sites, as we move forward there will be opportunities for everyone to get involved.
We have been working with Business in the Community NI and individual businesses to explore how businesses can get involved in One Million Trees.
In the first phase, we have been working with the Education Authority, the Woodland Trust and Keep NI Beautiful ECO-Schools Project to engage with schools in Belfast. We will continue to work with schools throughout the project.
We’ve been engaging with community groups in the areas where we’re planning to plant. We have also been liaising with the Voluntary, Community and Small Enterprise Panel within the Belfast Community Planning Partnership and the Community Climate Action Working Group (part of the Belfast Climate Commission).
The project’s key partners include the Woodland Trust, the Conservation Volunteers, Belfast Hills Partnership, National Trust, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Department for Infrastructure, Department for Communities, Northern Ireland Electricity, Queen’s University, Belfast Harbour Commission, the Education Authority, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, DAERA, Translink, the BMRG, PSNI and Invest NI.
