Tree Planting Projects

The BTFL Project Closed on 1st July 2022

Since the winter of 2006/07, BTFL’s first planting season, Birmingham Trees for Life has planted 100,000 trees in public parks and open spaces right across the city. Click here for a map of last winter’s plantings .

Planting projects

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.


If you know of a park or public open space near you that needs trees, you can still get in touch with Birmingham Tree People:

so that they can look into whether we can include your site in a future year.  Planning takes place in spring and summer so be sure to get in touch with us in good time as we are unable to meet last-minute requests!


Birmingham Tree People will always involve local school children in tree planting when they can, and welcome additional volunteers at our larger events. 


Volunteer at a Planting Event

Birmingham Tree People welcome adult volunteers at our larger plantings – please contact:  for more information if you would like to come along to help at an event.

Corporate Groups

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.
