Become a Street Tree Champion

Tree Care meetup
1st of October, 9am-12pm

Join us at Sevenoaks Rec to weed the 10,500 trees we planted over the 2020/21 season. We will be clearing around each tree so please bring a fork or spade if you have one, although tools will be available to borrow.

Feel free to turn up anytime between 9 and 12. We will be stopping for a light refreshment break at around 10.30am.

The meeting point is the car park inside the park off Sevenoaks road, just past West Rise School - look for the Treebourne flags. If you are coming later, you should be able to easily spot us amongst the newly planted trees.

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.
