Calls for more tree planting in Leeds to tackle climate change have been welcomed by Dispatch reader STEFANEY RAEE, who last year successfully fought against plans for industrial units on historic woodland. She writes:
Houghley Ghyll (Armley/Bramley boundary) is a conservation area with veteran trees and home to bats, many varieties of birds and butterflies. It belongs to Leeds City Council.
Over the years some of the trees have died and it would be wonderful to plant some younger trees to replace those missing.
In view of LCC’s current interest in planting thousands of trees across Leeds to help with climate change and the environment it would be helpful if our local councillors could assist in restoring this natural woodland feature.
