Northern Ireland urgently needs 2,000 hectares of trees planted every year until 2025 to help reach zero carbon emission targets, conservationists have warned.

The Woodland Trust has published a report revealing only 240 hectares were planted here during 2018–19 – 1,760 hectares less than its proposed target.

The charity said its emergency plan is the first of its kind and has been compiled as a “challenge to governments” by outlining how each UK region can increase tree cover to “reach zero net carbon emissions”.

The increase in the number of trees would also help tackle the decline in wildlife.

Overall the UK needs 35,000 tree hectares planted annually over the next five years, according to the trust.
