Alderman Cogan’s School

3,750 trees were planted in the grounds of Alderman Cogan’s school over the winter of 2020 / 21 by members of the Green Task Force.

Amanda Devaney, Head of Alderman Cogan’s school, recorded this short video. This and all video / images on this page courtesy of Picture Perfect Moments in collaboration with Hull College.

Roy Clayton, the Chair of “One Hull of a Forest”, was a pupil at the school years ago and said “The trees that we have planted here will help clean the air for the children and provide a wood for their children to play in. Caring for the environment is a long term commitment and I am very proud of the part the school has played in this work.”

Andy Steel, founder of One Hull of a Forest, on video at the planting. 10 species were planted including oak, willow, silver birch and beech. We estimate that, on average, over 60 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year will be taken up by this site alone.

The planting at Alderman Cogan’s school was funded by Trees for Cities. Soldiers from 25 Regiment RLC (Royal Logistics Corp), located at the Defence School of Transport, Leconfield, assisted in delivery.
