Birmingham Trees for Life

Welcome to Birmingham Trees for Life, Birmingham's dedicated tree planting charity.  Every winter we organise tree planting events in parks and public open spaces across the city, and since 2006 we have planted over 70,000 trees!  The City Council owns these parks, and BTFL works in partnership with the Parks Managers, Rangers and Friends of Parks.  

We involve local school children in nearly all our planting events, and welcome local residents who would like to come along to help too.  If you are are a Birmingham-based business, perhaps you would like to get out and do something of value to your community – why not sponsor tree planting in your city and get involved? 

We also organise special Community Planting Days, when people who have sponsored trees get the opportunity to come along and plant their own trees themselves. If you would like to join in the next sponsored planting event, you can sponsor trees here.

Our city has many trees, but we need more and we need to replace those that are becoming old or diseased ...........  so let's get planting!

The 2016-17 season finished in March 2017 - reports and links to photo albums from all our tree planting events can be found on our Blog and 'past projects' web pages. We held 23 planting events all over the city, and involved almost 900 children and adults in planting over 11,600 trees.  You can read our most recent Annual Review here .
We are now well in to our 2017-18 season, which continues until late March 2018. 

Information about all our events, and lots of pictures, can be found on our Blog.

Don't forget - if you know of a park near you that needs more trees, get in touch!
