Arden Free Tree Scheme
Solihull Council, in partnership with Birmingham Airport, is promoting the planting of traditional native trees in the borough through the Arden Free Tree Scheme.
This initiative is seeking to help people look after the wildlife and visual beauty of the area whilst restoring features typical of the wider local landscape. Solihull is well known for its rural character and it is hoped that this scheme will also help it maintain and enhance that reputation.
The scheme allows landowners in the borough who wish to plant new hedgerows and trees to submit potential plans to the Council, the successful applications will then receive free plants in time for the planting season (November - March).
