Plant a tree for Harlow

We are inviting families to plant new trees at 2 events being held this winter as we close in on our target of planting 2,000 trees before March 2022.

Community tree planting events are taking place on:

  • Sunday 23 January 2022 at the helipad site opposite Harlow Leisurezone (park in the Leisurezone car park)
  • Sunday 6 February 2022, old grazing paddock by Passmores House (free parking is available along Third Avenue close to the junction of Abercrombie Way)

For both days there will be 2 planting slots. The first slot is from 9.30am to 12pm and the second from 12pm to 3pm.

Places for all slots are now full. 

Council staff and local scout groups will be helping at all the sessions.

We ask those taking part to bring their own spades and mallets if possible. You will also need to provide your own snacks and drinks and dress appropriately for very muddy, cold and wet conditions.

The 2 tree planting events will see 1,450 new trees (850 on the helipad and 600 by Passmores House) planted adding to the 450 trees planted in East Park and the 10 trees planted on the helipad, 4 in Sumners Open Space and 1 in Potter Street back in December 2021.
