Trees for Leeds!
Trees offer fantastic ecosystem services to nature.
There is already a huge commitment to volunteering in our parks and green spaces. This represents over 24,000 volunteer hours each year.
We really appreciate any support and welcome new volunteers who want to get involved. For more information about the scheme and why woodland creation is so important to our health, wellbeing and wildlife, please check out our information pack.
To volunteer in seed gathering or tree planting events, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to improve your tree identification skills, please use our attached resources to help ID some of the trees around the city - or learn some fun facts!
White Rose Forest
Leeds City Council is a member of the White Rose Forest - a vision to increase tree cover and improve access to green spaces across the Leeds City Region that will benefit people, wildlife and the local economy.
We’re working in partnership with businesses, organisations and communities to plant and protect trees on public and private land in Leeds.
By increasing the quality and quantity of wooded spaces in our city, the White Rose Forest will help support the wellbeing of residents, protect local wildlife, and tackle the climate emergency.
