The Ilkley Trees Initiative began in September 2021 with an initial meeting of people from a number of organisations across the town. We share a common concern about the state of tree care across Ilkley and the growing risks from poor management, disease, development and climate change.
At our initial meeting we identified the most pressing points as the need for a Tree Strategy for Ilkley and a project to map and evaluate Ilkley’s trees.
At the same time we need to provide ways for residents to enjoy and appreciate their local trees. The Ilkley Tree Trails is one example of this.
Bradford Joins Trees for Streets
