Tree planting

Tree planting 2019/20

Thanks to everyone that participated in our tree planting survey We planted 871 new trees and 3000 whips across the borough between December 2019 and March 2020.
 
Local people were invited to pick up to three places that they would like to see new trees planted this winter, as well as select their favourite tree species. 
 
178 people had their say on planting locations and we have been able to fulfill every request we received for a new tree in an available planting location (roads with space for new trees in existing pits, suitable grass verges and local parks). A total of 255 trees were planted in locations chosen by residents. Our qualified officers carefully assessed the local conditions of each site and determined which trees were best suited to each environment, with preferred tree species taken into account where possible.
 
You can see where new trees have been planted (and the species) in our map below or you can search by road in our tree planting directory
