Help us plant one million trees in Tees Valley.

Trees on Tees is an exciting new programme stemming from the Tees Valley Mayor’s ambitious plan to plant one million trees and increase woodland creation in Tees Valley. Trees on Trees is part of England's Community Forests, a national network which works with local communities and landowners to plant trees across England to improve the natural environment, protect communities from flooding and improve access to green spaces in urban areas


The project aims to create an easily accessible assistance programme for all. Whether you’re a resident, a multinational company or any organisation or group in-between, we’ll help you to benefit from tree planting and boost woodland creation across the region.

The two-year programme will work with a wide range of organisations including businesses, landowners, farmers, communities, schools, environmental charities, and others to carry out the planting of one million trees.

The first part of the programme has seen the recruitment of four officers – a Project Coordinator and three Project Officers. The Project Officers will soon be/have been employed and their role will be to work with partners to find suitable sites for woodland creation and tree planting, support businesses, landowners, and community organisations to secure funding to deliver planting projects and to facilitate an annual free tree planting scheme for Tees Valley residents.
