Planting projects

Greening Eastbourne streets

Treebourne has been awarded a major grant by the Urban Tree Challenge Fund to plant 1,000 streets trees over the next two years. Encouraging community involvement was a key part of our successful bid and so we are inviting people to suggest where the trees will be planted. Will will also be launching a Tree Champions scheme giving volunteers the chance to look after the trees as they grow.

The exact locations of the new trees will be decided in the coming weeks. Areas where existing tree cover is low will be prioritised for planting. The trees will be planted by contractors with half going in the ground this winter, and the rest next year.
