Hounslow Council is committed to plant a tree for each newborn every year with the aim to make Hounslow greener and combat climate change with thousands of trees planted across the borough. We are calling on all our residents to help achieve this ambitious target.

We’re giving away 500 trees to individuals to plant in their gardens, so that together we can make a difference and make our Borough Greener!

About the Scheme

The London Borough of Hounslow has a commitment to significantly reduce the borough’s carbon footprint and help to tackle climate change. It is also an opportunity for the local community to get more involved with the environment they live in. As part of this commitment the Council are launching a free tree scheme. We will be giving out 500 free trees to residents during the 2021/2022 planting season.

There are 14 tree species available for small, medium and large sized gardens. The trees come as potted plants, fruit trees are bare-rooted and are up to 1m in height. The species have been selected in line with the character of the Borough in terms of its existing trees, and by suitability for the soil conditions across the area. The tree types are:

  • Field maple
  • Service Berry
  • Hornbeam

  • Hawthorn
  • Apple Cox's Orange Pippin
