Leave your legacy by planting a free tree

If you have a Wokingham borough postcode, you can claim up to 10 free trees to plant on your land as part of our campaign to improve the environment and fight climate change.

Following a successful pilot round, which saw 800 people collect a sapling at the start of the planting season last month, we’re inviting applications for the second phase of our Garden Forest Scheme, kindly funded by the Woodland Trust.

We hope to process these by the end of the season in March, when we’ll contact successful applicants to pick up their tree from a point within the borough. The scheme is open to anyone local, including businesses or community groups, who own land or can access land where the owner allows planting.

We’re offering hazel, crab apple, rowan, silver birch and field maple and we’ll try to accommodate your preferences where we can. To find out more, fill out the form on our Engage platform – you’ll need to register but it’s quick and free of charge.

While you’re at it, please share your thoughts on our draft Tree Strategy, which aims to improve how we plant and manage trees in the borough.
