Our District is full of trees. Many of our streets, gardens, parks and public spaces contain beautiful specimens, all improve where we live, and work hard for our environment.

We think there’s always space for more.

We’re asking our members to take a look around them – along our streets, parks, and public spaces – to spot gaps or zones which could become a good home for a tree. Whether an empty grass verge, a treeless roadside corner, or a dull, lifeless car park – we want to hear your suggestions for #SpaceForTrees.

How to get involved

Complete the form below, or find us on social media – share your suggestions, or even just your photographs of your favourite local trees and use #spacefortrees

Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs)

Broxtowe Council publishes a list of Trees with TPO on them. You can view it here

If you are concerned about a tree, or see one at risk – please get in touch with us, or with the Council Tree Officer as soon as you can. It is worth checking whether the tree has a TPO on it, or if it is in a Conservation Area, as these afford the tree some protections.

For more information on TPOs and how to apply for one go to one of Broxtowe Council’s webpages – some key ones are below.
