Funding secured for more trees!

We have secured funding of £288,000 from the Urban Tree Challenge Fund (UTCF), which enables the planting and maintenance of hundreds of new trees across key locations across our city

Trees planted on Weston Shore

The scheme aims to target areas that are most in need of increased tree coverage, including parks, open spaces, and neighbourhoods with lower green infrastructure.

There are eight sites being planted in Southampton this year (215 trees in total and some of which are planted already!) and another seven sites next year (216 trees).
