Tree Planting Projects

Our planting events take place during the winter, as this is the best time to plant trees, when they are dormant.

Since the winter of 2006/07, our first planting season, Birmingham Trees for Life has planted over 60,000 trees in parks and open spaces right across the city. Click here for a map of last winter's plantings .

Corporate Sponsors Planting Events

If your company would like to sponsor tree planting in the city, we would love to welcome your team on to one of our planting sites and get you in your wellies helping to plant trees.  You can find out more information and download a sponsorship form from the corporate sponsors' page.  We can arrange a suitable date and venue for your team to come along and help us plant trees!

Next Individual Sponsors Planting Event

Our last planting event for individual and family sponsors took place in March 2017 at the Lickey Hills Country Park.  If you would like to sponsor trees in commemoration of a special event, or to remember a loved one, just download and complete the sponsorship form and send it to us with your payment. We'd be delighted if you would like to join us this coming winter!  The venue and date (which will be a Saturday morning) for the 2017-18 season have not yet been confirmed.

Planting projects winter 2016-17

The 2016-17 planting season ran from mid November to late March.  Take a look at our Blog to see brief reports on, and photos from, the events across the city.

Trees can be planted for all sorts of reasons - to replace those lost due to disease or old age, to create new natural habitats, create shade near seats or playgrounds, extend existing woodland, or line paths or cycleways - just some examples of how we can use trees in an urban setting.

We have now almost completed our planning for the 2017-18 planting season, but if you know of a park or public open space near you that needs trees, get in touch so that we can include your project in a future year.
