Volunteers from Gaywood Valley Conservation Group and West Norfolk Council workers teamed-up on Monday to plant new trees in The Walks at King’s Lynn.

Paul Kunes, cabinet member for environment at the council, said: “Ten new trees have been planted, a mixture of lime, London plane and horse chestnut trees.

“This is just a part of our tree planting programme, we’re hoping this year to plant over 6,500 trees throughout the borough. 

“They will all be native species and will help towards being net carbon zero by 2030.”

John Hayes, secretary of the Gaywood Valley Conservation Group who helped plant the trees and also cleared some foliage, said: “The Walks is an asset to the town and an asset for wildlife. I think many of the trees in here were planted at the same time and will gradually die off, periodic replanting is by far the best thing to do.”
