Free tree scheme

Laxton's Superb Apple

As with previous years, the 2017 free tree scheme has been a resounding success with approximately 400 people applying for one of the two fruit trees on offer. 

As a result, this year's scheme is now closed, but everyone who applied for a free tree will be contacted in due course and provided with details of when and where to collect their tree.

In the meantime, if you have any queries about the scheme, please contact Roland Jones, Tree and Landscape Officer:


Data Protection - how any personal data you provide will be handled  

In order to process your application under the Free Tree Scheme we require some personal data from you, for example your name and contact details. We require this data as part of the Council's official duties to assess your application and to administer the scheme. If you do not provide the information we cannot process your application.

For further information on how we handle your personal data, please see the Heritage and Environment Privacy Notice on our Website, hard copies of which are available on request.

A full copy of our Data Protection Policy, which explains how we administer, process and store your data, can be viewed and downloaded from our Website.
