Wortley: Help plant new woodland

Would you like to help plant a new woodland on the outskirts of Wortley? Now’s your chance!

Volunteers will be planting a new woodland on the Beeston Royds site, which is currently of poor wildlife value. Planting trees will improve the biodiversity of the site, help to store carbon and create a new habitat.

The aim is to plant 2.0 hectares of new woodland with a range of species including Oak, Alder and Rowan.

Organisers say all you need to do is turn up on the day in warm and waterproof clothing with tough shoes or wellies – and be ready to get stuck in.

This event is funded by Leeds City Council, Balfour Beatty and White Rose Forest.

It takes place on Saturday, March 7 at 11.30am-1pm.


  1. Ah, our Wortley natural green space – that is the reason why Leeds Council cares not, about the deficiency of outdoor sports provision across Wortley and Farnley. It is of no account, say the Executive, because there is excess natural green space. Don’t plant trees on Beeston Royd, build some nice social housing there. There are trees a plenty adjacent to this field, Hill Top Cemetery and all that. Cottingley Springs Wood. How can the area be lacking in wildlife provision with adjacent woodlands that cannot be accessed by humans due to unstable mine workings? Send the volunteers down to Oldfield Lane to bring back to life the only thing that can improve outcomes for the children of West Leeds.
