Bring TreeTalk to you!

We are currently looking for projects to get involved in, with councils, cities and regions throughout the UK. We can also deliver projects to businesses, housing associations, charities and other organisations, including parks and green space initiatives.

The platform behind TreeTalk, Greentalk, can be used to create maps of urban forests and green networks. It can generate unique walking or cycling routes. It can connect residents to their local nature and green infrastructure. Experience in London has shown huge public engagement potential and the consequent incentivisation to choose active travel routes and get involved. TreeTalk works in any location where local environment information is available including any combination of natural or other points of interest.

Our Tree Species Directory and Photo Library expertise can be used to inform and explain the benefits of urban trees and green infrastructure.

We’ve found this combination of trails, mini-guides, and direct personalisation are a great way of making very dense information more accessible. They break down some of the barriers to deeper appreciation of the complexity of the natural environment.

Greentalk may be deployed in many different ways to cover diverse situations. If you have an idea that you would like to explore then please do just get in touch, we'd love to have a conversation and help make it a reality! Get in touch at hello@treetalk.co.uk

TreeTalk Abundance London Launched

We launched TreeTalk Abundance London in collaboration with Abundance London. TreeTalk is helping recruit and coordinate volunteers, caring for over 100 street trees newly planted by Hounslow and Ealing Councils in West London.

Featuring unique virtual rain gauges for every newly planted tree, TreeTalk is helping people really connect with the new tree outside their front door.

Check it out at abundancelondon.treetalk.co.uk. Please get in touch if you would like to do the same in your area.

TreeTalk for Abundance London

What you'll get with TreeTalk Local

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:

  • Open Access - a public mobile optimised web application
  • Your Own Area Defined - define the specific project area: anything from the whole city to just a few streets or a local park.
  • Display Your Trees - we add your trees, the data remains yours and can be extracted at any time.
  • Engage volunteer Street and Tree Champions and local residents with features:
    • Adoption - Adopt a tree, a wildflower patch, or anything else in your neighbourhood
    • Empower your volunteer Champions - Volunteer Champions can be involved from the start, caring for a specific area, and connecting with residents and recruiting them
    • A local weather station for every tree or garden - rainfall and temperature
    • Maintenance rota - Notify when a maintenance, such as watering, has been completed. Gently remind people when something needs doing.
    • Observations - Enable users to post messages about their activities and share photos of how well “their” tree is doing or the colourful beetle they saw sitting in its branches.
    • Your OwnTreeTalk URL - this could be a specific domain or a subdomain, e.g. localproject.treetalk.co.uk

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.
