Tree planting opportunities this winter

Get involved now to make a difference

Tree planting season runs from November to March and our Tree Planting and Establishment Team are eagerly looking for volunteers who would like to support tree planting projects across Surrey.

If you enjoy being outside in the fresh air surrounded by nature this is a fantastic opportunity to give back to your local community and make a difference to a green space near you. There is a role for everyone at our tree planting volunteer days, whether you'd like to get stuck in and do the digging or take on a non-planting role, there is something for everyone. We will also be running tree after-care volunteering opportunities throughout the year.

If you would like to get involved you can join our tree planting volunteering mailing list to find out more about the opportunities near you.

Tree planting days this January

In January 2024 we will be planting hedgerows at Bocketts Farm near Dorking. These hedgerows are vitally important to help meet carbon objectives and provide food and habitat for wildlife. No previous tree planting experience is necessary. Wrap up warm, bring a spade if you have one, and we hope to see you there.

Free trees

As part of Surrey's 1.2 million Tree Strategy we are offering free trees to parish councils, schools, community groups and charities across Surrey. We will be offering full support and advice on planting and after care of the trees.

Planting trees can:

  • Reduce air and noise pollution
  • Improve mental well-being
  • Provide habitats and food for wildlife
  • Improve water drainage
  • Be part of environmental learning
  • Provide shade and aesthetics

If you would like to request free trees for your organisation, please email the name, address and a contact telephone number for your organisation to:
