Tree and hedge projects
The Clyst Valley Regional Park will be one of Devon’s breathing spaces. It will provide an area of outstanding public green space with trails inviting people to discover and explore the surprising landscape. Wildlife-rich habitats such as native trees, hedges, parklands, orchards, and wetlands will be restored and a new 13-km walking and cycling route called the Clyst Valley Trail will be a highlight. You can help bring it to life, become a Clyst Valley Friend. Tree planting projects like Great Trees in the Valley and Cranbrook Canopy are helping to create the Clyst Valley Regional Park.
