The beginnings of an exciting new urban woodland have been created in Plymouth.

Over 150 trees and hedgerows have been planted by Plymouth Community Homes'  Environmental Services team, children from the nearby Stuart Road Primary School and volunteers from the Plymouth Tree Partnership. The ambitious project aims to transform a stretch of grassland that runs the length of the three blocks of flats at Wingfield Road.

A film has been made to show the process and the impact the wood is having.
