On Monday 17 January volunteers and council workers planted new trees in The Walks, King’s Lynn.
Cllr Paul Kunes, Cabinet member for Environment at the borough council, explains: “It’s a real pleasure to be in the Walks with Gaywood Valley Conservation Group. Ten new trees have been planted, a mixture of lime, London plane and horse-chestnut trees.
“This is just a part of our tree planting programme, we’re hoping this year to plant over 6500 trees throughout the borough. They will all be native species and will help towards being net carbon zero by 2030.”
John Hayes, Secretary of the Gaywood Valley Conservation Group who helped plant the trees and also cleared some foliage, said:
“The Walks is an asset to the town and an asset for wildlife. I think many of the trees in here were planted at the same time and will gradually die off, periodic replanting is by far the best thing to do.”
