We will be planting 500 new trees across the borough between November 2021 and March 2022.
Our trees are always planted in the winter months when they are dormant, as this increases survival rates. Where a tree is removed, it may not be possible to immediately replace a tree in that exact location, or it may take some time to plant another tree, but suitable vacant pits on streets are added to a planting list for future planting schemes.
It is really important that you do not plant trees on the public highway yourself - it can be incredibly dangerous due to hidden cables and pipes under the surface. If you are interested in getting involved in tree planting and care, you might want to get involved in our tree wardens scheme.
