Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) is delighted to have been successful in securing funding for 180 trees through two separate schemes. The social housing provider will plant 150 trees as part of The Conservation Volunteers’ ‘I Dig Trees’ programme, and 30 trees through the South East Lincolnshire Orchard Tree Scheme.
Libby Kerman, Sustainability Manager at LHP, said: “We believe that it is our responsibility as a major housing provider to deliver great homes and strong communities, and this includes considering sustainability across everything we do. Increasing the biodiversity of our green spaces not only creates havens for local wildlife, but also enhances our nearby nature for customer wellbeing.”
The trees, part of The Conservation Volunteers’ ambition to plant millions of trees to benefit climate, wildlife, and communities, will be planted in early 2024. LHP is now seeking volunteers from among its customers and colleagues to help with the planting, with more information available on their website, www.lincolnshirehp.com, in the coming weeks.
Kerman concluded: “We are excited to be part of this project and to help make Lincolnshire a greener and more sustainable place to live.” Planting is set to commence in February 2024.
