    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We're planting new trees to help the existing trees to better withstand climate change and help increase the biodiversity in the park, encouraging more wildlife as well as more seasonal interest.

    TREES are the lungs of our community giving us untold environmental, health and wildlife benefits. Climate change and the natural ageing of the trees, means it is vital more than ever that we plant more trees as well as maintain their number and diversity.

    In area the park is about 1.75 hectares or 4.3 acres and currently (2019) has 158 trees of around 80 different species. There is a large bank of very mature and old trees including rare Elm trees that form an important part of Brighton’s National Collection of surviving Elms.

    Our Park is really important because it helps mitigate climate change. The trees regulate ambient temperatures (urban heat island effect), filter pollutants and dust, sequester (suck up) carbon, attenuate storm-water, mitigate flooding and preserves biodiversity.

      Thank you - our new trees are all looking wonderful and giving great solace to those lucky to be able to walk in the park. We have enough funds for next winter's planting.
