Help plant thousands of trees in your local area

Published Wednesday, 27 October 2021

As part of our commitment to plant 360,000 new trees in the city in the next 10 years – that’s one for every citizen – we’re inviting local people to take part in making it happen.

Thousands of trees will be planted in Allesley Park, Sowe Common, Longford Park, Floyds Field and Park Wood in November and December as we kick off this year’s tree-planting season, hoping to plant just shy of 18,000 trees.

The wide variety of new trees will not only provide habitats and homes for wildlife, but also help combat air pollution as well as providing green spaces for us all to enjoy. The trees are being provided by Trees for Cities, a UK charity that works to plant trees globally.

Trees for Cities is the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by planting trees. By getting stuck in with local communities, whether it's revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments or getting people excited about growing, foraging and eating healthy food, the charity aims to cultivate lasting change in neighbourhoods.

Anyone who wishes to take part can volunteer by turning up in sensible shoes between 10am-2pm and be ready to use a shovel!

The planting days at all locations have been a great success and we'd like to thank all the volunteers who turned out in some rather poor weather conditions, to help get all these trees planted.
