Leeds City Council

UBoC is working with Leeds City Council (LCC) and LEAF to promote local and global forest education, research and green space development.


The Parks and Countryside team at LCC currently manages around 4,000 hectares of green space, including 1,300 hectares of woodland, which is collectively known as the Forest of Leeds.

In the short-term, the collaboration between LCC, UBoC and LEAF will see the establishment of a Leeds-based forest observatory, available as an educational and research tool for schools, universities and local communities. In addition, improvements to the educational experience at LCC tourist attractions such as Tropical World and Lotherton Bird Garden, focusing on the importance of forest conservation, will be a collaboration goal.

We undertake research, support forest and woodland projects in the UK and the tropics that deliver CSR/PR benefits, provide carbon reduction advice, and help to arrange compensation for unavoidable carbon emissions
