We at Birmingham Friends of the Earth are passionate about the environment in a global and local context. We realize the importance of trees for our planet, therefore, we are lobbying Birmingham City Council to double tree cover in Birmingham. The help of individuals and local communities is essential for achieving that goal, for this reason we aim to encourage as many people as possible to join us in our effort to double the tree cover of our city. You can do so by:

  • We are currently putting together our petition to Birmingham City Council. Please check this page regularly for a link to the petition.
  • Volunteer with us. Click HERE for more details.
  • Support the Friends of the Earth’s Call in asking the Government to double the UK’s tree cover by 2045: https://act.friendsoftheearth.uk/petition/tell-uk-government-double-tree-cover 
  • Spread the word, talk to people about the importance of trees and tell them how to get involved.
  • Get involved in tree planting events.
  • If you have a business, sponsoring tree planting can help improve the environment in which your employees work and live. Studies show that the more trees and landscaping a business district has, the more business will flow in. https://btfl.org.uk/corporate-sponsorship/
