Your Tree Our Future Returns!

We are pleased to announce the return of the ‘Your Tree Our, Future’ scheme, delivered in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council.

The scheme allows residents to claim free trees chosen from eight species which are suited to Hertfordshire’s geography and climate. You can claim up to five individual trees, or a pack made up of 36 trees to form a hedgerow.

Last year over 75,000 trees were given away to residents across Hertfordshire, with over 10,000 trees given to residents in Welwyn Hatfield.

There’s a set number of trees available that will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you don’t manage to claim any trees this year, don’t worry as the scheme will be repeated in 2025.

Sue McDaid, Executive Member Resident Services and Climate Change at WHBC said: “We are really pleased we are able to provide our residents with the opportunity to receive a free tree. Tree planting is a great way to enhance our natural environment and tackle climate change by reducing carbon in the atmosphere.

Trees also help tackle air pollution and have positive benefits for our physical and mental health so I encourage you to apply for a tree before they are all gone!”
