Following the overwhelming success of previous tree giveaway and sale events, we are repeating it in our continued drive to plant 100,000 trees in the B&NES area by May 2023.
There will be a nominal fee for the trees in order to reinvest the money in running another similar offer in future planting seasons.
The trees have been selected to fit into the average domestic garden, with some larger species available (please read descriptions). This will help us increase urban greening, increasing carbon capture and improving air quality, help enhance opportunities for wildlife, reduce the heat island effect and just simply make urban life better for citizens and nature.
This autumn we are holding two tree sale weekends. The first event will be held in Midsomer Norton, on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th October. Trees will be available to order from 1700 on Friday 7th October. The second event will be held in Bath, on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th November. Trees for this second event will go on sale at 1700 on Friday 4th November. Trees will be on sale for 7 days and available to order on a first come first serve basis. Autumn and winter is the best time of year to plant trees, as they are more likely to thrive during their dormant period and when ground conditions are most favourable for establishment.
A 2.5m pot grown tree would normally retail @ around £50 and we are selling them for just £10, a 1m potted tree would be around £25 and we are selling them for just £5! – so order your trees online (to a limit of 5 trees per household) and fill your boots (of your car) in your positive action to fight the climate and ecological emergencies with us.
Please note – this event will be non-refundable. If you do not collect your tree(s) during your allocated collection slot, the trees will be donated to other planting projects within B&NES. There will be no other opportunity to collect the tree(s) outside the specified collection period.
