Residents can apply for free trees under a scheme which has returned to Charnwood.
The borough council has once again teamed up with the National Forest and partner idverde to run the scheme which has 3,000 trees to give away and people have until January 10, 2020 to apply.
Last year 2,000 trees were given away to local residents, community groups and parish councils in the borough.
Households and community groups are eligible to choose up to three trees and there is a choice of three varieties; holly, hazel and cherry plum.
The trees will be approximately 20cm – 40cm when they are collected. Each resident who applies for a free tree will be given a guide on how to look after them properly.
Trees will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and residents that apply for a free tree must be available to collect on one of the following dates and locations:
- Saturday January 18 2020, 10am-3pm – Central Park, Syston
