COVENTREE is Coventry’s Urban Forest Strategy 2022 -2032. It can be found on the City Council website.
This is the City’s first tree strategy and is a real milestone for its trees; setting the scene for the City’s management, care and development of its urban forest going into the future and certainly for the next 10 years covered by the strategy.
Coventry is particularly blessed with a large and extensive tree canopy. In fact, it can be argued that this canopy characterises the City. The Council is responsible for the management of over 45,000 individual trees in parks, highways and other greenspaces and an estimated 200,000 woodland trees.
The importance of trees is becoming increasingly recognised not least through global changes which are and will affect everyone on the planet.
