Nearly 22,000 trees are to be planted across the county (including Sutton on Sea) in the coming weeks, creating more than 4.7 km of hedgerow and one hectare of woodland.

The trees, supplied by Lincolnshire County Council through the Hedge and Small Woodland Grant Scheme, enhance the county’s landscape and benefit wildlife habitats.

The programme is also designed to remedy the loss of hedgerows that has occurred over the last 70 years.

And since January 2000, 16,470km of hedgerow and trees have been maintained, restored or planted through the scheme.

Councillor Colin Davie, executive member for the environment at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “One of the best things about living in Lincolnshire is the beautiful landscape we have.

“We’re determined to protect and enhance this important part of our heritage for future generations.
