The Council is committed to increase the number of trees in the borough in addition to planting replacement trees for all those removed from streets, parks and housing estates. The tree planting programme targets 4 different wards each year. This allows for a better use of resources and it makes it clear to residents and members when they can expect to see trees planted in their local area. The programme for the next 5 years is below. With the limited funding we have at present, priority is given to planting replacement trees, however, we will consider planting trees in new locations, if funding allows. We are happy for residents to contact us direct and request trees in their road. In the past, some residents associations have raised money to sponsor trees in their road / area, if this happens, we will aim to match fund and double the number of new trees. However, this all depends on whether the road is suitable for tree planting, which can be limited in some roads due to location of street furniture and underground services.
