Surrey County Council has committed to facilitate the planting of 1.2 million trees – one for every Surrey resident – by 2030.

The very first tree will be planted this Saturday (5 October), at the 10th anniversary Surrey Hills Wood Fair in Cranleigh. The oak tree will be planted by Tony Samuels, Chairman of SCC, and Tim Oliver, Leader of SCC.

The tree has been donated by Mary Foryszewski, the Mayor of Waverley.

Surrey county council, in partnership with Tilhill Forestry, will be giving families who attend the wood fair a free tree to plant when they get home (with advice on how and where to plant it).

The 10th Surrey Hills Wood Fair promises to be bigger and better than ever with a whole host of exciting new additions to the Wood Fair as well as the return of many favourites.

The Wood Fair is full of traditional rural charm celebrating all that is ‘Good about Wood’ in the outstanding beautiful Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A Brilliant day out for all the family with masses of free activities, fantastic food and drink from the Surrey Hills, woodland walks, cooking over camp stoves plus.
