The Birmingham Trees for Life Project closed on 1st July 2022.
You can sponsor tree planting through the Birmingham Civic Society’s “Trees for Life” Campaign. Sponsorship can be in memory of a loved one, or to commemorate a special occasion like a birth or an anniversary, or to celebrate an event such as a wedding or graduation. Trees will be planted to help create areas of woodland in Birmingham’s parks and open spaces.
The trees that your sponsorship funds will be planted in a public park. We will tell you where and when tree plantings will be happening. We will also send a certificate of tree planting. This can be for yourself or can be sent as a gift to whoever you specify.
Birmingham City Council owns the parks, river walkways and other open spaces where trees will be planted, and will be responsible for looking after the woodlands in the future. As all the land is publicly owned, you can visit your trees at any time. Trees are not marked in any way, to leave the woodland natural.
Friends and Family Tree Planting Events – Important update!
We are planning on a Friends and Family Tree Planting event in November / December 2022 which will be delivered by Birmingham Tree People Charity.
Here are some quotes from families who have previous planted with us –
‘I thought I would be coming here to plant one tree, but I’ve already planted ten – it’s wonderful.
‘We wanted to offset our carbon footprint, planting trees is a brilliant way to do that and we hope we are doing our bit to save the world one tree at a time…’
‘We bring our Chow Chow dog here every day for beautiful dog walks so our friends decided to buy us some trees to plant here as an engagement present!’
‘We are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, what better way to do it!’
‘We are planting a tree to commemorate Dillon’s birth. He is one year-old now and we wanted to show that you are never too young to put tree.’
