Support King's Climate & Sustainability in planting over 200 hedgerow trees at the Honor Oak Park Ground (5 April) and New Malden Sports Ground (12 April)!

Planting these 950 trees will improve flora and fauna biodiversity across our sports grounds, as well as helping us achieve key targets within the King's Biodiversity Action Plan. Hedgerows are hugely important for cleaning our air, capturing carbon, reducing flooding and providing an essential refuge for wildlife.

Please make sure to wear sensible clothing including sturdy, closed toe shoes, wear lots of warm layers and bring a waterproof. Please also bring gloves if you wish to wear these during the tree planting - as we may not be able to provide any.

The Climate & Sustainability Team will provide be providing some gardening equipment, such as shovels and watering cans. If you have any gardening equipment, in particular small shovels, please do bring them.
