This winter, Redbridge Council is giving away 500 small fruit trees to Redbridge residents. Fruit trees provide fruit and are a food source for bees. They help to reduce pollution and noise levels, provide shade in the summer and new trees will help increase London’s tree canopy cover.

If you’ve never tried planting or currently have a paved front garden this is a great way to green up your outside space. These trees can be planted in the ground or in a pot.

With careful pruning a tree can be kept at a suitable size, or it can be trained flat against a wall or fence if you have more space. When trees are kept in a pot, growth is slower and smaller but can still produce a good crop of fruit.

Priority will be given to areas of the borough with low canopy cover. Check your road here.

Complete this online form to apply. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 30 November.
