Following its previous success, we are running our free tree giveaway again this year, with more trees to give away than ever before.
800 UK native trees, including Rowan, Elder, Spindle and Silver Birch are on offer to Broxtowe residents.
These species have been chosen as they are beneficial to local wildlife and great for pollinators. They are also native to the UK, grown and supplied from a UK nursery. The trees will be provided in biodegradable bags (which will need to be removed before planting) and are suitable for planting in a large pot. Instructions on how to plant these trees will be included. They will be delivered using our fully electric fleet vehicles.
