Tree planting

We plant new trees between October and March. These usually replace trees that had to be removed.

You can request for a tree to be planted on council land. We will check if this is possible and get in touch to let you know.

We also accept requests for memorial trees; please use the form below. We are not able to add plaques to or near trees as the plaque may get damaged.

During a long dry spell we always welcome your help in watering new trees. If a tree dies within the first year it will be replaced in the next planting season.

Reporting guidance

If you want to track progress on your report, you can log in to, or register for, a BRUM account.

Use the map below to start your report. The map will default to a 2 mile radius from Birmingham city centre, and you can:

  • search by entering a post code or road name in the search button (include the property number if known)
  • use the "find my location" circle underneath the zoom tabs to use your current location when making a report
  • use the "add new enquiry" tab and zoom in to choose the location manually

When you have marked the location on the map, use the "report new enquiry" tab to begin completing the form.

You can add additional location information within the form once the mapping point has been submitted.

If you have any difficulties in submitting your report using the map, please call us on 0121 303 6644.

NB The map may not be displayed if you are using an older version internet browser (such as Internet Explorer 10 or earlier).
