Help develop a new Tree and Woodland Strategy for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

BCP Council wants to hear your views to help develop a draft Tree and Woodland Strategy for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

BCP Council is using this opportunity to engage with residents, visitors and those working in the BCP area, to understand more about how people feel about trees and woodland locally, whilst considering the challenges and future options for tree planting.

Councillor Mark Anderson, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Place, said:

“Trees and woodland are vital for providing habitats for nature and wildlife, whilst also supporting our own health and wellbeing. Trees benefit our urban areas in providing shade whilst supporting air quality improvements, but we know that tree planting in urban areas can be difficult.

“I’m pleased that we are bringing forward this work to help provide a clear direction of the future management of all trees across the conurbation. Please do take this opportunity to have your say and do make use of the interactive maps, which allow you to highlight where you feel new or additional trees could be planted to benefit your local community.”

The survey explores people’s opinions on the benefits of tree planting and management, whilst considering the threats and challenges which our trees and woodland face in the BCP area.

The survey closes on Monday 5 December 2022. You can find out more by visiting or by emailing
