Free Trees for Hounslow provides an opportunity to take away a potted fruit tree and is open to Hounslow residents, schools, and local faith and community groups.

This Sunday (14 January) the trees are being distributed at Boston Manor Park from 10am to 1.30pm and the following week the event comes to Turnham Green in Chiswick.

To receive a free tree you must order it online before collection. To place your order, visit this page on the Hounslow Council web site.

750 trees in total are available for this year’s giveaway, which includes 500 reserved for residents, 150 for community groups, and 100 for schools.

Last year, the council’s parks team distributed more than 900 trees as part of the scheme enabling the borough to surpass its tree planting target for the season.

Schools, community groups, and faith groups will be able to apply for an individual tree or bundle of three trees each, while residents will be able to apply for one tree per household.

The species of tree available are: ‘Jonagold’ Apple, ‘Victoria’ Plum, ‘Brown Turkey’ Fig, ‘Concorde’ Pear and, ‘Morello’ Cherry.

Councillor Salman Shaheen, Hounslow Council’s Cabinet Member for Recreation, Public Spaces, and Parking said, "Tackling the climate emergency is a key priority for myself and the Council, with our annual free tree giveaway playing an important part in Hounslow’s commitment to plant at least 22,500 trees by 2026.

"Building upon the successes of previous years, we are pleased to announce that this year's tree giveaway has been extended to include faith and community groups, adding to our usual residents offering.

"Hounslow’s schools are also once again eligible to participate as part of our commitment to supporting students and schools in the borough to take action towards protecting our environment."

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
