NALC meets the Forestry Commission
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) met with the Forestry Commission to highlight the role of the local (parish and town) council sector.
NALC's chair, Cllr Keith Stevens, and NALC's chief executive, Jonathan Owens, met with the Forestry Commission's chief executive officer Richard Stanford. They discussed the significance of carbon capture, the challenges faced, such as threats from pests that affect planting sufficient trees, and how both organisations can work together to promote planting more trees.
The meeting was a part of NALC's continuous effort to encourage local councils to protect trees and woodlands to help combat climate change and create more climate-friendly communities.
