By planting trees together, we plant hope for the future

Our planting season runs from October to March, but there are opportunities for volunteers to help Trees for Cities at projects across London throughout the year. 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:

  • meet new people
  • have fun
  • learn more about trees
  • exercise
  • improve your health and wellbeing
  • gain practical, hands-on experience

Help us plant a million urban trees by 2020


To date we have planted over 600,000 trees in cities.  We have now set ourselves an ambitious new target to strive to plant 1 million urban trees by 2020.  Help us meet this exciting new milestone…
