Torfaen Tree Strategy and Action Plan 2021 - 2030

Closed 24 Mar 2021

Opened 24 Feb 2021


The aim of the strategy and action plan is to help ensure that Torfaen’s street trees, woodlands and hedgerows are valued, managed and enhanced for the benefit of current and future generations.

The role of the strategy is to provide a council wide framework to tree management and protection obligations as well as promoting a pragmatic approach to the type of tree work that can reasonably be undertaken. It should also seek to quantify and value the tree and woodland resource in Torfaen and in combination with Torfaen’s emerging Green Infrastructure (GI) Strategy, act as a platform for Council and community tree and woodland planting projects.

Why we are consulting

The tree strategy is a comprehensive document which sets out the Council’s approach to managing trees, including those that make up woodland and hedgerows. It explains the national and local policies and how these translate into action to protect and manage trees for multiple benefits.

We would like to hear your views on the draft strategy and our approach to managing trees, woodland and hedgerows through an action plan.
