Contact Us

Because we want to spend as much of our money as we can on planting trees, rather than on expensive offices, we don’t have a shop or office that you can visit.

You can e-mail us at 

If you are a school you can email our Schools Liaison Officer direct at 

If you would like to write to us, you can, at the following postal address:

Birmingham Trees for Life
The Birmingham Civic Society
9 Margaret Street
Birmingham B3 3BS

'Plant a Tree' sponsorship forms and payments should be sent to this address. Please bear with us if we don't respond to your posted letters and forms immediately - we operate on a 'skeleton' part time 'staff' of freelance people, who are not based in the Civic Society office.
