We want to plant a new generation of trees across Bristol. This will bring immediate benefits to people who live and work in Bristol and leave a legacy for future generations.
TreeBristol aims to increase tree canopy cover to 30% by planting in Bristol’s parks, open spaces, grass verges and streets. We replace lost street trees and also plant in new sites across Bristol in greatest need of more trees. The TreeBristol team carries out responsible tree planting with the right tree in the right place.
Have you ever thought about commemorating an anniversary or giving someone a unique gift?
Planting a tree with the council’s TreeBristol campaign offers just that - and helps to improve the environment too.
Our sponsorship packages suit every budget and range from £20 to £330.
For detailed information on our sponsorship packages and planting locations please visit our tree sponsorship page.
Since the TreeBristol launch in 2005, the council has planted around 3,800 trees, many with the help of local communities and other partners.
We plant trees that are usually already 3-4 metres tall, larger trees create immediate visual and environmental impact and greater resistance to vandalism. We plant a wide range of trees and our selection of species depends upon space available, other trees in the area and the local landscape and character. The tree planting season runs from November to March.
It's that time of year again - tree planting season. To launch our 2012/13 planting season we are running three community planting events during National Tree Week and one more event before Christmas. Everyone is welcome to join us to plant a tree. Tree planting is great fun and the trees will bring many benefits to the landscape, people and wildlife of Bristol. We will show you how to plant the trees and fit stakes and guards around them. The events are free so join us to make a difference; all trees, tools and equipment are provided. Do wear warm, waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear. The trees to be planted at the upcoming events will be available for sponsorship from £60, see our sponsorship packages for more information.
