Why Should You Plant Trees on Your Property?

Mature and well-managed trees can add as much as £500 to £8,000 on top of your current property value, depending on the species of tree you decide on. By planting trees, not only will your property benefit, but you will help protect the wildlife and nature in your area, and improve the air quality.

Tree Planting FAQs

Yes! Planting trees does help to fight climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air, helping to produce better air quality and more oxygen. They also provide shelter to wildlife, offering wind shelter and preventing soil erosion. By planting even one tree, you’ll be helping to protect the environment and reduce the effects of climate change.

The cost of planting a tree will vary depending on a variety of factors, including:

- The tree species chosen
- The number of trees that need to be planted
- The property type and protection regulations
- The area of tree planting

The best time to plant trees on your property for most species native to the UK is Autumn. However, successful planting can take place anytime between October and April, as long as the conditions are right. If you plant your trees when the ground is frozen, the growing roots may not receive enough moisture which can damage and prevent roots from flourishing. On the other hand, waterlogged soil or extremely hot temperatures can also damage your growing tree.
If you own the land where you’d like to grow your memorial tree, there won’t be many restrictions, providing it isn’t protected land. For those of you wanting to plant the tree on land that you don’t own, you will need permission from the landowner, which may be a council, business, or individual.

As a professional tree planting company, we perform local authority checks on each and every one of our jobs. We have been dealing with local councils for years and have plenty of experience on where conservation areas are and what is and isn’t allowed. We don’t charge to do the planning applications or paperwork required to ask for tree planting permission.
