Fife Climate Forest

Our vision: Connect, Grow, Thrive

Looking after trees is very important for our planet’s health. Fife Climate Forest is a partnership working together to protect the trees we already have and plant new trees. Every tree counts and even small actions can help biodiversity and combat climate change.

Connect communities together with a shared vision about trees, woods, and forests. Help nature to recover by creating bigger, better, connected areas.

Key aims:
  • Encourage communities to work together to make the environment healthy and green.
  • Create a place that appreciates every tree.
  • Link woodlands with new trees and hedgerows to help wildlife move between them.
Key aims
  • Plant trees in urban areas to provide shade, reduce heat, and manage stormwater.
  • Combine planting trees with farming and community growing.
  • Support communities to build wealth and develop skills.

Support thriving and resilient places for people and nature.

Key aims
  • Improve health and wellbeing by creating more accessible greenspaces.
  • Protect Fife’s trees and create woodland areas to store carbon and support biodiversity.
  • Enhance the landscape by tree planting along riversides and creating hedgerows.
  • Help trees to withstand climate changes, like pests and diseases.
  • Promote wildlife conservation and biodiversity within Fife’s urban and rural treescapes.
