Forest for Peterborough Planting Days 2015/16

In 2010 PECT launched Forest for Peterborough, an exciting project to plant over 180,000 trees in and around the city and surrounding countryside by 2030. The aim is to plant one tree for every person living in the city.

Please arrive in good time so you are not disappointed late in the day if the event finishes early due to all trees being planted. Please note these events are subject to change according to weather conditions. Please contact Simon Belham to check arrangements and to register your attendance on  07715 372432 (anytime) or via email (Monday to Wednesday only) at

Date: Saturday 26th March, drop-in between 10.30am-4pm

Join a volunteer tree planting day! Plus, the first 100 residents from Stanground to attend have the opportunity to take away their own free crab apple tree with instructions for planting at home to help improve tree coverage in the local area.

This event is sponsored by IKEA and its employees will be taking part in the day. The project is also grateful for the support of the Mick George Community Fund, Peterborough City Council and Buckles Solicitors.
