Become a Street Tree Champion

Tree Care meetup
25th June, 9am-12pm

Join us this Saturday at the Old Ratton planting site (known locally as Babylon woods). It's a lovely place to be, with wide-ranging views of the town and now full of pioneer plants, wildflowers and even some wild garlic and strawberries.

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

The meeting point is at the top of Old Mansion Close (for 9am). If you are coming later, the planting site is through the alleyway next to number 6. Look for the Treebourne flags as you come on to the planting site. We will be at the far end of the site this time, so you might have to walk a little way along the grass path that runs up to the dew pond then follow it round to the left.

We are working towards the ambitious goal of a carbon netural town by 2030.

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.
