We’re on a mission to futureproof Northern Ireland’s Faughan Valley landscape. It’s good news for wildlife and for the people who live in, work in, or visit the valley.
In the UK around 40,000 deaths a year are linked to air pollution. Trees in urban areas can improve air quality. You can help by getting involved in tree planting, and defending the trees we already have.
When planting in the upland fringe, choosing the right trees is crucial to growing successful woods. So which trees have we planted at Smithills?
We've planted over 2,500 native trees along the river in Northern Ireland’s beautiful Faughan Valley, where we are working to create a resilient landscape that will benefit both wildlife and people.
Agroforestry is about making the most of the land area through three dimensional farming. The deliberate integration of trees within agricultural crops and livestock is a win-win for food production and the natural environment.
