Become a Tree Champion

Street trees launch event

Saturday 4th December / 10am - 12pm

Join us for the planting of the first of 1,000 new street trees for the town. The event, which will include complementary mince pies and a free-to-enter raffle with some great prizes, will mark the start of the “Greening Eastbourne Streets” project, which has been awarded a major grant by the Urban Tree Challenge Fund.

Find us on the grass just to the east of the pier (opposite Queen’s Hotel, and the junction of Grand Parade and Queens Gardens). The tree planting ceremony will take place at 10.45am

OUR MISSION

Our goal is to double Eastbourne’s tree cover by 2030 We’re working with the council and independently, to find sites - large and small - where we can plant trees. Our aim is to maximise the capture of CO2 emissions before they can escape into the upper atmosphere and wreak havoc on the planet’s climate. In short, we plan to turn Eastbourne green.

Sevenoaks Rec

Our first site, identified by the council some time ago as a park that would benefit from complete regeneration, with vast, poorly used open spaces, low tree cover and limited wildlife. By planting thousands of trees in Sevenoaks Rec, we can not only help the battle against climate change, but massively improve the park and the quality of the natural environment for local residents.
