Rhiwbina tree planting dates

Sites in Rhiwbina are to be part of a planned planting of 30,000 more trees in Cardiff over the next six months.

More than 150 community events will be held during the tree-planting season, which runs until early April, as part of Cardiff Council’s mass tree planting programme, Coed Caerdydd. This includes events with schools, community groups, corporate volunteers, and residents.

The Rhiwbina events are (click on each for more info):

Established in 2021, Coed Caerdydd has already seen volunteers donate 5,000 hours of their time, helping to plant and care for around 50,000 new trees spread across the city.

Cardiff Council cabinet member Jennifer Burke, said: “Last year we had 1,356 volunteers helping us with planting and if we can match that this year, we could be looking at 80,000 new trees having been planted in just over three years. That’s great news for Cardiff and for the planet and I’d really encourage people to sign up for one of our planting events, they’re great fun and a great way to make a positive difference.

“As these trees become established, they’ll provide important habitats for nature, make our city greener, clean the air we all breathe, and help absorb some of the climate-changing carbon emissions we create.”

When assessing sites for planting, environmental and soil conditions are factored into species selection to give the newly planted trees the best chances of survival.

The new trees are then looked after by a network of volunteer tree guardians, working alongside council teams to help water and care for them.
