10,000 trees will be planted in Blondin Park during National Tree Week as part of Plant to the Beat, a free festival.

The charity Trees for Cities have organised the event which will take place in the Northfields park on December 6 with 400 volunteers, and anyone can sign up.

Northfields Conservative Councillor David Millican said: “Yes that’s right. Incredible but true that 10,000 trees will be planted in Blondin Park in just one day.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Blondin Park as a whole new woodland area will be created with a diverse selection of trees. We’ve discussed this with many local residents and at the public Northfield Ward Forum and everyone is enthusiastic.

“Trees for Cities have a proud track record of planting trees across the country and this year we are thrilled their big project is in Blondin Park.”

Sharon Johnson, Chief Executive of Trees for Cities, said: “Plant to the Beat is a fun day out for all the family. Planting trees brings people together and enhances their quality of life. It engages communities to create something positive for the future.

“If you’re as passionate about trees as we are, join us and register now.”

Trees for Cities is working in partnership with Ealing Council and with support from the Mayor of London, as well as The Big Tree Plant’s partners, including Defra and the Forestry Commission, to create this urban woodland in Ealing.

There will be a woodland warm-up at 10.45am before the planting starts at 11am, and a free healthy meal will be provided.
