National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season (November to March each year). This year, it’s taking place between 28 November – 6 December.

Though we had planned as part of our Luton Urban Trees project to have community tree planting event during this period, due to Covid 19 restrictions we decided to keep everyone safe this would now not be possible.

Thankfully mhs homes who offer social and affordable rent homes, shared ownership and private rent homes and are the largest independent landlord in Kent came to the rescue and offered there estates team to help the Big Local workers plant all the trees during this period.

Planting begins on 2nd of December starting at Maida Road, we are very excited to get started.

Big thanks also go out to our partners who include Medway Plus, Orchard Community Energy, Postcode Local Trust and last but not least The National Lottery Community Fund
