Many thanks to all our volunteers who took part in Big Plant 2 on Sunday 8th March. The wind blew but the rain held off and the tea tent didn’t fly away. We planted 950 birch, oak, willow and alder trees across the Jubilee Meadows site in Burnley. Impressive!


In line with information provided by the Government and health officials, we suspended our workdays. Please see the Work Plan page for information about work we have done and work we will be doing once the situation changes.

Big Plant 3

This will be going ahead near Worsthorne on Sunday 8th November 2020. We will be meeting at Maiden's Cross car park (opposite the windmills) on The Long Causeway, from 10am onwards.

About Us

Trees for Burnley, a volunteer group working for nearly 20 years to plant and look after trees and woodlands in the borough.

We have helped Forest of Burnley plant more than one million trees, doubling Burnley's woodland area since 1997.

Trees for Burnley run a monthly Sunday volunteer group at which all are welcome. Activities include tree planting, woodland management and rhododendron clearing at Towneley.

Our aims are…

  • To assist in the management of existing woodland that is in poor condition.
  • To help create new woodland in and around Burnley
  • To raise awareness amongst the community about the importance of trees and woodland
  • To assist with funding for other conservation projects undertaken by local people
  • To work with and complement the activities of other organisations in this field
