Residents Planting Free Tree Giveaway
Thank you
Thank you for helping to make Hounslow greener! This scheme is now closed.

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.

During the winter of 2021-2022, 500 trees were offered to local residents to plant in their gardens, so that together we could 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.

About the Trees

There were 16 tree species available for small, medium and large sized gardens. The trees came as potted plants, fruit trees were bare-rooted and up to 1m in height. The species were 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 were:

  • Field maple
  • Service Berry
  • Hornbeam
  • Hazel
  • Beech
  • Swedish Whitebeam
  • Hawthorn
  • Apple Cox's Orange Pippin
  • Apple Golden Delicious
  • Apple Laxton's Superb
  • Apple Bramley Seedling
  • Fig
  • Doyenne Du Comice Pear
  • Beurré Hardy Pear
  • Conference Pear
