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.

Training

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

Podcasts

We have recorded interviews about different aspects of trees.

Hi all – have taken this from the most recent BOSF newsletter we thought it might be of interest and importance to many of you:

Greener Birmingham Update on Route to Zero Taskforce

The R20 Taskforce recommendations will finally be going to council for ratification on 15th Sep at 2pm. Whilst progress has been made, the recommendations are not currently in the form of a usable action and funding for most recommendations is yet to be secured.

Greener Birmingham remains committed to being part of the taskforce, but we do now have a joint responsibility to hold our councillor’s to account. This is a moment in time of huge significance for the city, its residents and the planet and we can’t let the ambition or timescales slip any further.

Please could you:
1) lobby your councillor by social media or emailing the attached template before 14th September. It will be downloadable from the Greener Birmingham website homepage by 4th September and you can find your local councillor’s contact information by clicking here.

2) create your own social media messaging to encourage people to lobby their councillors using #greenerbirmingham and #netzero2030

3) view the meeting 15th September 2pm. It can be viewed live by clicking here and papers for the meeting will be available from 8th September:
