Free Trees for Hounslow

The London Borough of Hounslow is committed to significantly reducing our borough’s carbon footprint. We’ve pledged to plant 7500 trees this planting season, and encourage our local community get more involved with the environment in which they live in.

Following the excellent interest from Hounslow residents in last year’s tree giveaway, we are extending the resident offer and giving away 1000 free fruit trees to residents, allotment holders, and schools.

Our intention is to involve and educate people of all ages in shaping a sustainable cleaner and greener future for the borough. Tree planting is an immensely rewarding activity which promotes health and wellbeing as well as pride and ownership within a community. 

What trees are available

  • Elstar apple*
  • Golden Delicious apple
  • Brown turkey fig
  • Doyenne Du Comice pear* 
  • Victoria plum*
  • Kentish cob hazel nut.

Trees will be approximately 60cm in height. All trees will come in a pot and will need to be taken out and planted into the ground during their dormant stages. 

(*Allotment offer limited to these trees)
