Horticulture Wales Champions Climate, Biodiversity, and Wildlife at Wrexham University Campus

Garddwriaeth Cymru yn hyrwyddo’r Hinsawdd, Bioamrywiaeth a Bywyd Gwyllt ar Gampws Llaneurgain Prifysgol Wrecsam!



More than 200 trees have been planted at a Wrexham University campus during its Go Green Week.

The trees were planted at the Northop Campus as part of a collaborative effort to promote environmental sustainability. Horticulture Wales, a project funded by Shared Prosperity Funding and supported by Flintshire County Council and Denbighshire County Council, was made possible by the donation of trees from the Woodland Trust.

This tree-planting initiative, which included a variety of species such as hazel, blackthorn, crab apple, elder and more, aims to combat the decline of wildlife corridors. According to statistics from the Woodland Trust, since 1950 approximately 118,000 miles of hedgerow have vanished, posing a threat to biodiversity.

“We are thrilled to have been a part of Wrexham University's Go Green Week 2024,” said Naeve Richardson, Project Development Officer of Horticulture Wales. “Together we are making significant strides in environmental conservation and sustainability.”

Horticulture Wales is committed to broadening wildlife corridors on the campus and is planning to plant more trees later in the year. To get involved email [email protected]
