    Hi Christiane

    I have received a response from our Tree Officers and unfortunately they are unable to accept trees for planting in parks and open spaces. However, we are offering free Christmas tree recycling. All trees collected will be sent for composting.

    Please see our main website for further information.

    Many thanks
