Steyning for Trees
Please click our latest news on the Planting of Wildlife hedges at Abbey Road

Steyning For Trees (SFT) is a new community group formed to help fight climate change by promoting the planting of more trees. Trees are also vital for the beauty of our town and landscape – and our mental wellbeing. The Steyning Society is keen to support SFT and the Society has provided a grant to assist their work. The aims of this group complement that of the Steyning Society and so it has been agreed that SFT should be affiliated to the Society.
At the October 2019 Steyning market SFT gave away 240 trees and hedges (Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Hazel and Crab Apple) to gardeners, sourced from The Woodland Trust . They are now working, with the Parish Council to undertake tree planting on selected green spaces in Steyning owned by the Parish. We will have a stall at the Steyning Market again on October 3rd 2020. Do come and see us.
SFT are working closely with other organisations including The Woodland Trust and the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE). However, they are also very dependent on local volunteers for committee work, planting and funding. If you think you can help then please contact:: SteyningForTrees@gmail.com
