About BTF

We are a group of volunteers dedicated to increasing the tree canopy cover of Bristol.

Why? Because tree cover brings so many benefits to an urban environment: a shared amenity, public health, economic growth, reduced pollution and flooding, wildlife, food and a better sense of well-being.

Some of the things we do…

  • Comment on Planning Policies and Applications.
  • Source funds for planting new and replacing existing trees.
  • Protect established & remarkable trees.
  • Find locations to plant new trees.
  • Link up with local community groups and other stakeholders and help them promote tree planting and protection.

We are not the only ones who love trees. Here are some others :
