Central Avenue close to the city centre now has 30 trees planted on the roadside. The

project was a partnership of Hereford in Bloom, City Tree Wardens and Balfour Beatty

during National Tree Week. The area had lost many of its original trees. Tree Warden Mo

Burns said: “Trees are the natural architecture of our urban environment, contribute to

tackling climate change and make the city healthier and more attractive to live in. Hereford

has only 15% tree cover, but national analysis shows for a city its size it should be nearer

30%.” More tree planting is planned.

Volunteer planters (l to r) Ellie Lonergan, Nana Fletcher and Jane Denny.
