Volunteer with Trees for Cities

Our planting season runs from October to March, with lots of opportunities for volunteers to help Trees for Cities at several projects across London. You will always be supported by Trees for Cities staff when volunteering at any of our projects.

 Volunteering with us is a fantastic way to:
  • learn more about trees
  • get practical hands on experience
  • improve your health and wellbeing
  • meet new people
  • have fun

TiCL have pledged £1 to Trees for Cities for every tree location that gets uploaded onto their app. All you need to do is download the app from the app store and get uploading. There are two ways to upload: upload any interesting trees near you, or, email volunteer@treesforcities.org to get details of Trees for Cities projects and tree trails and spend a fun day out in London finding our trees and uploading them to the app under our headline. TiCL is an exciting new FREE App to find out about, share and discuss what’s going on right where you are right now, straight from your mobile phone.

Planting Season: October 2013 - March 2014

Last year's trees are beginning to spread their roots and grow. 500 volunteers donated their time to help us plant 17,500 trees as part of mass tree planting projects in Redbridge and Ealing. These projects will create urban woodlands for the local communities to enjoy, as well as increasing flood water storage, improving air quality and providing habitat for wildlife.
