Champion School Trees launches in Brighton & Hove

Search is on for the tallest, widest and oldest trees in the city!

Children in Brighton & Hove are being invited to take part in a new Champion School Trees project.

School pupils will measure trees on their school grounds, or in nearby parks, in a bid to find the tallest, widest and oldest trees in the city.

CPRE Sussex has provided each school with an activity pack with simple instructions on how to measure their trees. Each child is also invited to share what makes their tree so special.

Entries can include anything from poems and word clouds to collage and paintings. A selection of entries will go on display at the Jubilee Library, Brighton, in June.

Champion School Trees is part of the Brighton & Hove Tree Festival 2024. The aim is to raise awareness of the immense value of trees to the city and its residents.

Organised by a team of volunteers and supported by CPRE Sussex, the Sussex countryside charity, the festival is sponsored by Connick Tree Care, Hanningtons Brighton and Rampion.
