How to get new trees planted
What is the tree-planting scheme?
Residents or groups in the borough can get a new tree planted with Street Trees for Living.
All you have to do is contribute to the planting cost and agree to water and keep an eye on the tree for two years.

Cost of planting a new tree
A group of six neighbours who applied together would pay £50 each. For that they would get:
a choice of location
a choice of species from a range, subject to our approval
professional planting of a specimen of approximately four metres
a guarantee against failure or damage.
When we plant trees
Planting takes place in winter or early spring.
