Trees planted at Allerton Grange Fields
Twelve new trees have been planted at Allerton Grange Fields in Moortown in March 2015 as part of a community led project thanks to Leeds City Council Housing Advisory Panel (HAP) funding.
Friends of Allerton Grange Fields is a registered tenants and residents association with Leeds City Council and have planted parkland trees at Allerton Grange Fields with species including Broad Leaved Lime, Common Alder, Silver Birch, Hornbeam and Oak.
The Community Tree Planting project at Allerton Grange Fields was delivered by Leeds City Councils Countryside Ranger Jon Dunster with support from local residents, Friends of Allerton Grange Fields and the Leeds Wildlife Volunteers (pictured).
The newly planted trees will help to create a pleasant environment for joggers, cyclists, walkers, children and young people at play by creating an attractive landscape along the path linking Lidgett Lane with Talbot Avenue.
Simon Jordan, Tenant & Community Involvement Officer at Housing Leeds said “We are absolutely delighted to support Friends of Allerton Grange Fields on continued community led environmental improvements to the local area which benefit our tenants and residents”
As part of our initiative called 'Lidgett Lane Gateway' 15,000 daffodil and crocus bulbs were planted between 2010 and 2013 along the central reservation and grass verges on Lidgett Lane near the entrance to Allerton Grange Fields. This project was kindly supported by East North East Homes who supplied the gardening tools and bulbs.
