Belfast: One Million Trees

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In 2020, we began working with partners from organisations across the city to create a process for collective tree planting across Belfast. The idea originated with Belfast Metropolitan Residents Group and has become an ambitious partnership initiative coordinated by Belfast City Council, which aims to make our city greener, cleaner and healthier. Our ambition is to see one million trees planted over a 15-year period.


Why is planting trees important?


We had been been working behind the scenes to coordinate the Belfast One Million Trees programme, identifying potential sites for planting, and building a partnership of statutory agencies and voluntary organisations who can help us make this happen. Then in December 2020, we were very excited to be able to launch the Belfast One Million Trees programme - check out our short video and stay in touch!


Now, its your chance to get involved. Each year, we'll be asking for your ideas about how we can make the Belfast One Million Trees happen. Use the mapping tool below to show us the "Places" where you'd like to see a tree planted or tell us your comments and ideas using the "Ideas" tab. We especially want to hear from businesses and public landowners across the city who would be willing to plant a tree on their land.
