Clyde Climate Forest Talk

Max Hislop, Director of Clyde Climate Forest

Trees, woodlands and forests are recognised as essential if we are to address the Climate Crisis by reducing damaging atmospheric emissions and are crucial to assist in a recovery for nature.

The Clyde Climate Forest is an ambitious and exciting project which will see 18 million trees planted in both urban and rural parts of Glasgow City Region over the next decade, increasing woodland cover from 17% to 20%.

The Clyde Climate Forest builds on the current enthusiasm for tree planting and will channel that interest into worthwhile and well-considered tree planting projects that deliver a broad range of climate and ecological benefits.

Max’s presentation will cover:

  • the genesis of the project – the Blueprint for the Glasgow & Clyde Valley’s Green Network; 
  • the current programme based on the “3Cs” – Canopy, Connectivity and Carbon; and,
  • the prospects for a similar initiative in the Forth Valley Area.
