Trees for Seaford

The Aim:

To work with the Seaford Community, to plant and care for trees in the area as trees absorb carbon and help to increase biodiversity.

To spread awareness of trees and the need to increase habitats for wildlife. To create green corridors, across and between communities, and connections to the wider countryside and the South Downs National Park, including tree and hedge planting, wildflower corridors and improving habitat quality at local green spaces.

One of the exciting things about the Ouse Valley Climate Action fund is that it will bring together voluntary groups in Seaford and across the project area. Trees for Seaford and On The Verge are looking forward to collaborating with others to plant trees, renature parts of our green spaces and raise awareness of the biodiversity crisis and what we can all do about it.

How it’s tackled:

Planting and caring for trees in streets with grass verges and grassed areas such as greens, school fields, church grounds or large public gardens.

Enhancing knowledge and skills around tree planting and tree care, including support for community gardens, community orchards, schools, and other community groups.

How you can help:

Could you be one of Trees for Seaford’s members?

Specifically, we are looking to recruit people who share our positive ethos and can contribute a regular amount of time. As well as the practical hands-on planting days in Spring/Autumn and monthly tree care sessions over the Spring and Summer, there are a variety of other jobs needing enthusiastic people who can help organize and manage their activities.

It’s an opportunity to meet people who share your passion and enjoy being part of a sociable group, so please get in touch  – Click here
