TreeTalk would like to partner with charities, community groups, residents associations and other organisations applying for the Greater London Authority’s ‘Grow Back Greener’ Fund.
Grants range from £5,000 - £50,000 and are available to create and improve green spaces in London’s urban areas. It’s a great opportunity to get your project funded. Applications close 5 October 2020.
The fund aims to ‘...support a wide range of activities to help make London greener, fairer, healthier and more resilient. These activities should take place in and enhance publicly accessible spaces including parks, community gardens, housing estates, streets, waterways and nature reserves. They should mainly be focused on making physical improvements to the space.’
We believe TreeTalk can be part of the solution, and through TreeTalk Local, we offer a way to engage with your communities in a new way, and provide a means to illustrate the impact that your projects are delivering.
How does TreeTalk Local work?
We launched a TreeTalk Local for Abundance London as part of their project supporting new street trees in a specific area of Chiswick and Ealing. This project enables the community to adopt and look after trees, giving residents a means of improving the environment where they live.

How does TreeTalk do this?
TreeTalk Local is developed specifically for local tree planting and maintenance initiatives.
TreeTalk Local is your very own version of our immensely popular TreeTalk London but aimed at your local streets, or park.
Out of the box, TreeTalk Local offers you:
As well as all these powerful features, it also offers the classic TreeTalk benefits of beautiful mapping, daily tree walk generation and fascinating information and photos on your local trees.
Partnering with TreeTalk
Partnering with us allows you to enable greater transparency, wider engagement and provides you with the same IT and features developed for TreeTalk over a number of years.
