Tell us about the trees or green spaces you value…
Historically, Birmingham has had a high concentration of trees and green spaces by comparison with other European cities – this is enhanced by the sheer size of Sutton Park. But trees are often under threat – from ‘development’, from people who don’t like autumn leaves, from often groundless fears of subsidence or other hazards. Likewise, green spaces, including private gardens, can be ‘improved’ or tidied up, which often means reducing the biodiversity, even to the point of paving them over. GreeninBrum wants to support those who are defending our green spaces and the abundance of plant life in the city. We want to celebrate what’s there. Sometimes just framing something in the eye of a camera can help other people to value it more.
You can get a free page on this website to tell us about your local park, your garden or allotment, street trees you love, or a little scrap of waste ground full of glorious weeds and wildflowers. You can upload photos of them. Or you can email us text or pictures and we’ll do the job for you – just let us know what name, if any, you want us to credit. Use the contact form below.

What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left!
O let them be left, wildness and wet.
Long live the wet and the wilderness yet.Gerard Manley Hopkins, Inversnaid
