Free trees for Brent community groups

Trees on the King's Drive Estate in Wembley Park
From Brent Council

Community groups in Brent are being encouraged to apply for free tree packs to brighten up their local area.

In partnership with The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) the Mayor of London is making available 25,000 trees for community groups, free of charge, to plant in their London neighbourhood.

To find out more and apply for a community tree pack, visit

Advice from our Parks Service:
  • Groups or interested residents should contact Brent through the parks service to discuss where they would like to plant the trees
  • Trees can be planted on private land with the permission of the landowner, which may or may not be Brent Council
  • To ensure a good spread of trees throughout the borough, we would encourage local groups to apply together and share a tree pack
  • Not all trees will be suitable for all locations and trees on public land will be maintained by Brent Council, so make sure to get in touch to discuss
If you have any questions, please contact the Parks Service at
