National Tree Day, Sunday 31 July – let’s green the west together!

We’re planting 1 million trees and need your help to green the west!

National Tree Day community planting events offer your chance to take part in this important legacy project for the west. Get outside, get involved, plant a tree and enjoy the community spirit. (And potentially a free BBQ depending on the event!)

* Some organisers provide tools and gloves on the day, and others require you to bring your own gear. To find out what is provided and information on disability access and site details, click on the link for each site.

We’ll keep adding events to this page. If you would like your local event added, please drop us a line with the details.
