Community under one canopy
Hello! Welcome to the Humber Forest
Humber Forest isn’t a single ‘forest’ covering an area. It’s the combined greatness of all the trees, woodlands and hedgerows growing in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
What’s more, it’s a community forest – and it’s growing all the time.About us
What we do
In a nutshell, we help communities, farmers, landowners, and businesses to plant trees in the easiest and most effective way possible, at no cost.
Where we are
Humber Forest covers the whole of the East Riding of Yorkshire, including Hull; from Snaith to Stamford Bridge, Flamborough to Spurn, and everywhere in between.
Trees are vital. Not only to the natural world, but to us humans, too. They nourish our health and wellbeing, bring joy and prosperity to our communities, and sustain the planet on which we depend. Community forestry is about maximising all these benefits.More info
Interested in planting trees on your land? As the East Riding is mostly high-grade arable farmland, or under pressure for development, we understand that active and willing participation of farmers, land managers and landowners is essential to improving the canopy cover in the area, helping alleviate flooding, improve soil quality and reduce compaction.Read more
