Trees for Cities is celebrating its 25th anniversary and plans to celebrate by planting more trees in more cities across the UK than ever before! We are looking for sites to plant whips (young trees) to create urban woodland habitat and hedgerows, and would love to hear from NHS land owners who have large tracts of land (ideally >0.5 hectares) available for planting.
With an ambitious target to plant 150,000 trees, this is an exciting opportunity to become part of a network that will make our hospitals greener, healthier, happier places to be. Our planting projects engage the local community to create valuable green spaces that they can use for exercise, socialising and relaxation.
Working with NHS partners, we will engage hospital staff, patients and local residents as volunteers to help plant and care for the trees, building local ownership and pride in making a positive difference to the places that people live, work and play.
