Planting Season: October 2014 - March 2015

It was another busy season for our volunteers. Plant to the Beat was the highlight of our volunteering year. Over 200 volunteers helped plant an urban woodland of 10,000 trees on Saturday 6 December 2014 to the sounds of local musicians, choirs and drumming bands.

Neighbourhood trees popped up elsewhere in London as 250 volunteers supported local communities in estates, parks and streets across the city. A big thank you to our volunteers for helping us create green spaces that provide biodiversity, flood resilience and a relaxing escape for city-dwellers

“What’s great about Trees for Cities is that their work is as much about people as it is about trees”
