Our Vision is to plant the right trees, in the right places to help nature recover and thrive, to protect and mitigate against climate change, and to create an ecologically secure environment for future generations.
More trees will help the Region adapt to increased rainfall and provide cooling during heatwaves. It will help create a just transition from fossil fuel reliance locking up large amounts of carbon while providing more woodland habitat for wildlife.
Where will the CCF be?
Spanning Glasgow City Region from Greenock to Lanark, the Clyde Climate Forest covers the eight regional local authorities of East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, Glasgow, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, South Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire.
It has been endorsed by the Council Leaders of all eight authorities and will connect and enhance the woodland network across local authority boundaries benefiting people, wildlife and climate.

'1000 Trees' Local Campaigns
We have identified 16 'Target Neighbourhoods' across urban parts of Glasgow City Region which have low levels of existing tree canopy cover and are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Each of these areas will become part of our '1000 Trees' Campaign.PROJECTS
