Get Digging in December!

last modified  29/11/2010 17:16 PM

Dust off those winter boots and kick off the planting season with Trees for Cities!

As the days get shorter and chillier, it’s not all doom and gloom, because now is the ideal time to plant trees.

This December, we will be offering the residents of Tower Hamlets a helping hand.

Nina De Groote, Schools and Events Co-ordinator at Trees for Cities, says:

"We are very excited to be going into the 2010-11 planting season. This year Trees for Cities will plant thousands of new trees and plants to help increase biodiversity and make our city a greener, more pleasant place for everyone.  We’ll work with schools, community groups and residents teaching people about all about trees and how to look after the environment."

12pm - 23 December - Manchester Road

We’re now entering the final phase of our three-year planting scheme at the estate on the Isle of Dogs. This year’s planting is based around a signposted nature trail. We are currently consulting with residents and looking forward to a Christmas planting day.

Trees for Cities plants a mix of species to expand and improve the environment. It makes life easier for local wildlife and promotes biodiversity, which is especially important in the last month of the UN’s International Year of Biodiversity.

The new plants also remove pollutants from the air and ensure these green spaces will look even better in the future.

Please note that you will need to register for this event.  Please contact for further details.
