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 which you can visit at any time. We will tell you where and when tree plantings will be happening. We will also send a certificate in memory of someone, to commemorate a special event or as a gift for a celebration to whoever you specify.
Donations. Of course you can also just donate to the Trees for Life Campaign to support tree planting in Birmingham and we will use your donation to fund one of our projects planting trees in public spaces with the community and local school children. You can donate any amount through the Birmingham Civic Society Just Giving Page: The Birmingham Civic Society – JustGiving
Friends and Family Tree Planting Events – Important update!

We are planning on a Friends and Family Tree Planting event in November 2022 which will be delivered in collaboration with Birmingham Tree People .

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.’

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 trees and 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.
Thank you for your support.
