Birmingham Tree People are the tree wardens in Birmingham. We aim to plant, protect and promote trees and the urban forest

What We Do

We’re volunteers that gather information about local trees, get involved in local tree matters and work on practical projects.


Once a month we run a free training session on an aspect of trees, tree care and woodlands.


We have recorded interviews about different aspects of trees.

Part of the role of a tree warden is to protect trees and one of the things we can do is check planning applications in our area to see if they have a negative impact on trees. Simon Needle has a video about how to find the applications on the City Council’s website.
There will be more videos to follow – why not subscribe to our youtube channel to get notifications?

Lucky with my work to get to walk round places like this. Just a few miles from the city centre this is a view from one of the tees at Edgbaston Golf Course. Some good sized trees here, possibly champions for Birmingham. Some good old specimens too. Will need to go back and start recording these.

Fun bit of id now, thanks to Laura. Any suggestions?
