As part of their drive to plant 100,000 trees in the B&NES area by May this year, Bath and North East Somerset Council will be holding the final public Tree Sale of the tree planting season on Saturday, March 18th at Royal Victoria Park.
The Tree Sale scheme aims to encourage BANES residents to plant trees in their gardens and increase canopy cover in urban environments, bringing benefits to both citizens and nature through ecosystem services.
Trees will be on sale for 7 days and available to order here on a first come first serve basis. Full collection details provided at time of ordering.
A variety of species including flowering cherry trees, Silver Birch, Beech, Alder, and a dessert plum will be on sale to suit a range of garden sizes, at fantastic value with trees in 10 and 5 litre containers all priced at just £5!

The trees have been selected to fit into the average domestic garden, with some larger species available (please read descriptions). This initiative will help us increase urban tree canopy cover, increasing carbon capture and improving air quality, help enhance opportunities for wildlife, reduce the heat island effect and just simply make urban life better for citizens and nature.
Trees will be on sale for 7 days and available to order on a first come first serve basis. Autumn and winter is the best time of year to plant trees, as they are more likely to thrive during their dormant period and when ground conditions are most favourable for establishment.
A 2.5m pot grown tree would normally retail @ around £50 and all tree available at this tree sale will be priced at just £5 – so order your trees online (to a limit of 5 trees per household) and fill your boots (of your car) in your positive action to fight the climate and ecological emergencies with us.
Please note – this event will be non-refundable. If you do not collect your tree(s) during your allocated collection slot, the trees will be donated to other planting projects within B&NES. There will be no other opportunity to collect the tree(s) outside the specified collection period.
