New Trees in Weavers Fields and Bethnal Green Gardens

Trees for Cities are pleased to be working with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to plant new trees in Weavers Fields and Bethnal Green Gardens in 2023.

The new trees will increase canopy cover in the area, provide a natural barrier against pollution, increase natural habitats for wildlife and reduce high temperatures to combat the Urban Heat Island effect.

Come plant a tree with us!

As part of this project, Trees for Cities is hosting a free community tree planting event at Weavers Fields on Saturday 11th March.

  • The day is completely free to join and open to all ages and abilities.
  • Trees for Cities will provide all the tools and equipment you need as well as expert guidance on tree planting from our urban forest team.
  • There will be a free hot lunch provided.

The sign up form for this event is now closed. However, you can still join us tomorrow to plant. Head to the green gazebos in the North-East area of the park at 10am to sign up. Click the button below for an Information Pack with more event details.

See you there!

Bethnal Green Gardens Planting Day - Saturday 4th March

Thank you to everyone who planted with us in Bethnal Green Gardens last Saturday 4th March!

Together we dug deep and planted over 12 trees in the park. This will help to combat pollution from surrounding roads, create new habitat for wildlife and increase the canopy cover in the Borough to reduce the Urban Heat Island effect. We couldn't have done it without you, thank you!

If you would like to continue supporting greening projects in Bethnal Green Gardens, you can sign up to the Friends of Bethnal Green Gardens group, by emailing your interest to To find out more about what they do click here.
