About Us

‘Birmingham Trees for Life’ is a project devoted to promoting awareness and understanding throughout the city of the value and importance of trees, to raise money to enable more trees to be planted, and to encourage the involvement of everyone, especially young people, in planting trees.

‘Birmingham Trees for Life’ (BTFL) is a partnership between The Birmingham Civic Society and Birmingham City Council. Formed in July 2006, BTFL spreads the message that trees matter, ensures that more trees are planted, and that those we have are valued and looked after. By working in partnership, the two organisations have access to both the land and resources to plant and maintain trees and woodland in Birmingham’s parks and open spaces*.  Over 60,000 trees have been planted across Birmingham since the project started.

You can find out more about BTFL by watching our short video.

* BTFL is not involved with street trees in Birmingham – the planting and maintenance of street trees is managed separately by the City Council and its contractor, Amey.
