Tree Trust

Celebrate or commemorate by planting a tree

Horse Chestnut in Stanmer Park

If you are looking to mark a significant event, e.g. birth, anniversary or bereavement, planting a tree would benefit the city, support wildlife, and help fight pollution. For £251.00 + VAT you could have a tree planted in one of our parks and open spaces. This includes a tree planting certificate as a keepsake of the event and a guarantee of replacement should your tree fail to establish, for whatever reason, during its first year.

Alternatively, you could make a donation (of any amount) to the tree trust fund towards the planting and upkeep of new trees in Brighton & Hove, for which you will receive a certificate.

Further details can be found in the Tree Trust leaflet (PDF 745KB) and includes a form for ordering a tree, or you can use the tree trust online form. Please send your cheque by post to the address on the leaflet. Cheques should be made payable to Brighton & Hove City Council. Tree orders should be received before 30 September in order to guarantee the tree being planted in the next planting season.

Many potential donors will think of parks and open spaces, but it is also possible to donate trees to complement street plantings. While we would be happy to investigate this on your behalf, only tree-lined streets where spaces exist can be considered at this time. However, such locations will be subject to a search for underground services and in some instances it may not be possible to plant trees due to the position of these utilities.

You are welcome to be involved in the planting of your tree and we can often tailor planting ceremonies to meet a wide range of occasions and personal requirements.

Important note for donors

As the venues are for the active enjoyment of all users, it will not be permitted to place flowers at the planting site. Should such a memorial be required, we would respectfully advise the donor to consider a site in the local cemeteries. Unfortunately it will not be possible to allow the fixing of plaques at any donated tree.

The following parks and open spaces are available for donated tree planting:
