If you would like to plant trees on council land

The council has committed to increasing the urban tree cover. Over the winter periods between 2019 and 2022, the council planted over 14000 trees within the county’s key settlements.  The council is committed to further tree planting to improve the environment and contribute to reducing the effects of climate change.

We are also working with Monmouthshire Housing Association, Town and Community Councils and community groups to plant trees on land owned by them.

We are looking for sites in all our towns and villages. If you know of a communal area that you feel would benefit from planting one or more trees, please get in touch and we will consider this as part of our planning. 

The tree planting season runs from November to the beginning of March, with trees planted earlier generally have a better survival rate so please consider this whist emailing.

Please email with the following details:

  • Your name and contact details
  • The exact location you would like to plant preferably with a map and WhatThreeWords location
  • What species and size of tree you would like to plant
  • How many trees you would like to plant
  • Is this tree a memorial to a person or event?
  • Are you asking Monmouthshire County Council to plant the tree(s) or would you like to?
  • Can you assist with maintaining the tree(s) after planting?

Reuse shop tree planting fund

We have two Reuse Shops in Monmouthshire that sell items that have been saved from disposal at our Recycling Centres. They sell everything from bric-a-brac to antiques and collectables. Monmouthshire has declared a Climate Emergency – profits from shop will go towards tree planting in our towns and villages to help increase the urban tree canopy cover and mitigate the effects of climate change at a local level.
