As part of the Buckinghamshire Council's comprehensive Climate Change and Air Quality Strategy, Buckinghamshire Council set a mission, which began in 2021, to plant over 543,000 new trees on council-owned land in the county within a decade – one for every resident.
The most recent tree planting season ran from October 2022 to March 2023. Key projects in the county have included a mix of large-scale tree planting on council land and a wide variety of local community planting initiatives.
- Grange Farm – 14,700 trees and shrubs planted at this site to create a new woodland in Hazlemere. Volunteers, including 60 school children, attended a planting day run by Chiltern Rangers.
- Bury Farm – 14,300 trees and shrubs planted at this site in Amersham, creating a new woodland.
- Platinum Way – 4,038 trees planted along this walking, wheeling and cycling route with volunteer planting co-ordinated by Chiltern Rangers.
Alongside the larger projects on council-owned land, community involvement has resulted in locally delivered, smaller tree planting projects across Bucks. One such example is the St Peter's Greenway, where a total of 2,700 trees were planted, spanning from Berryfields to Buckingham Park. Additionally, two 'tiny forests' were established; one at Princes Risborough School and the other at Bourton Park in Buckingham, both consisting of 600 trees each.
Furthermore, a lease has been signed with Forestry England to create a new woodland in Bucks near Wing, where 132,000 trees will be planted over the next 12 months. During a relatively wet April, Forestry England have already planted over 109,000 trees at the new Wing Woods.
