Planting our Future have committed to planting 250,000 trees by 2030 through local engagement with schools, residents, businesses, and community groups including the Solihull Tree Wardens. 

Planting our Future was developed with the community at its core and the team consider active community engagement, education and raising environmental awareness as their priorities.  Working with, volunteers, community groups, schools, and businesses, the team have created opportunities for species to thrive, encouraging biodiversity in all aspects of our day to day lives.

 

Since the campaign started in 2020, we have planted 51,000 across the borough and we are on track to plant another 25,000 in 2022/23.

Finding enough space to plant more trees is the next vital step, Planting our Future are now looking for landowners to come forward and offer land to plant over the course of the project.  

The initiative will be a partnership arrangement and depending on the type of planting you plan to undertake we will fund up to 100% of costs for the trees, including a site visit and tree planting assessment.  The landowner will carry out the planting and subsequent aftercare. 

Due to popular demand, the request for free trees is now closed for the 2022/23 planting season, please do come back, and visit us again next year, we will be taking requests from January 2023 to April 2023 for the 2023/24 planting season.
