Thank you for reporting your Freedom of Information. We have
received your request.

Freedom of Information and the Coronavirus Covid-19

During the pandemic we know that we won’t be able to respond to
requests in the normal way and will need to prioritise other
services and adapt our usual approach during this extraordinary
period. Whilst Monmouthshire will try to get a response out, you
will understand that existing or future requests may be much slower
than usual or not at all.
   
We have contacted the ICO who have stated that they understand that
resources, whether they are financial or people, might be diverted
away from usual compliance or information governance work. They
won’t penalise organisations that they know need to re-organise
workloads.

Hi Anthony,

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
We hope you can accept our sincere apologies for the delay in
responding and any inconvenience this may have caused. We thank you
for your patience during this period.

In March 2021 you asked:

Could you tell me the authority expenditure on tree planting in the
year 2020 and how many trees were planted?

 

During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown period a
  number of our staff were redeployed into Covid-19 response teams.  
This included our Freedom of Information team and those who provide
the responses from the service areas. This has resulted in a large
backlog of requests, however we are now working to recover this and
get up to date.

We wondered if you still wanted this information. If you do can you
let us know by 29th October please?

 

With kind regards,

Freedom of Information

Hi ,

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

We hope you can accept our sincere apologies for the delay in
responding and any inconvenience this may have caused. We thank you
for your patience during this period. 

You asked: 

Could you tell me the authority expenditure on tree planting in the
year 2020 and how many trees were planted?

The response to your request is as follows:

It isn’t straight forward to identify the amount of money spent on
tree planting as this is something that is done across several
departments and not easy to give labour costs either.

With regard to actual planting, we have been trying to capture this
information from people planting trees for reporting against the
climate change targets, the tricky bit is giving you data for a
calendar year. Planting tends to take place in the autumn and winter
and within a financial year so we don’t track planting dates. In the
FY 19-20 we planted 365 trees. In the year 20-21, we planted 7790.  

For a bit more detail, 499 of those trees were standards or heavy
standards (larger trees you might see planted in a park or road
side) and the rest where whips (typically two years old typically
used for woodland planting schemes).  Costs vary for the trees
depending on species and size but typically between £35-£100 per
tree.  Some of the whips were donated by groups.  Some tree were
planted under contract through the work and funding of the Green
Infrastructure team, some planted by volunteers and some by staff so
putting a labour cost isn’t straight forward. Plus costs of ground
preparation, Tree guards and aftercare, much of which is genuinely
not possible to quantify due to the way we collect data.

I cannot confirm which were planted in 2019 or 2021 outside the date
range requested but I hope this provides some useful information.
Apologies that we can't be more specific.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the way the Council has handled your
  request for information, you can request a review by e-mail  
to [1][email address] or by writing to:

Freedom of Information

Monmouthshire County Council

County Hall

The Rhadyr

Usk

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you
have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

Information Commissioner’s Office

2nd Floor Churchill House

Churchill Way Cardiff 

CF10 2HH 

Telephone: 0330 414 6421 / Email: [2][email address]

 

There is no charge for making an appeal.

With kind regards,

During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown period a
number of our staff were redeployed into Covid-19 response teams.
This included our Freedom of Information team and those who provide

of requests, however we are now working to recover this backlog and
get up to date.
