Tree Planting

150 Trees have been planted across Balsall Heath this spring 2010. They will provide shade and keep our iner city area cool in summer, while providing homes for birds and even improving the air quality. We lost many younger trees in the 2005 tornado.

John Newson attended a meeting of the Birmingham Climate Adaptation Team and proposed community tree planting. A grant has allowed Balsall Heath Forum’s Green Team to do the planting with the assistance of St Paul’s Trust.

The trees have been placed to fill the gaps in previous rows, and to make an exciting new avenue in Balsall Heath Park. There is a new row along the cycle path from the Middleway along Longmore Street. The silver birches and flowering cherries should give a visual display all year round and help Balsall Heath with its Britain in Bloom effort.
