Our city trees need your help!
Our green and leafy streets are beautiful, but many of our trees are in trouble.
With your help, CPRE Sussex is working to halt their decline and to grow the Sussex Urban Forest.
What is Plant Your Postcode?
With your help we can build on Hove Civic Society’s ongoing work planting trees in Hove, and expand this across the city.
Why is this project so important?
We need trees to breathe!
They improve our health and wellbeing, support wildlife, reduce air pollution and flooding, provide shade and regulate the microclimate.
Trees offset our carbon footprint!
Brighton and Hove is home to The National Elm Collection. Our trees are free from elm disease and the city is home to some of the world’s rarest varieties.
What it costs
This is variable but on average:
- Park or verge trees will cost up to £390
- Inner-city and street trees cost £445 or more
Tree planting takes time and Plant your Postcode is a long-term project.
Help us make more of Brighton & Hove's streets as beautiful as this...
