Help grow Surrey's urban forest by planting trees in Surrey parks.

Since 1991, volunteers have planted thousands of trees and shrubs in Surrey parks to help grow our urban forest. Each plant creates shade, improves air quality, provides food and shelter for wildlife and boosts biodiversity in parks.
