Unwanted trees will be finding forever homes thanks to an initiative run by Shropshire Council and Shrewsbury Town Council.

People with ‘unwanted’ trees have been donating them to the Shrewsbury Town Council nursery at Weeping Cross, where they have been tended and cared for under the partnership Trees Outside of Woodland project, and are now ready to be replanted. They are being given away for free.
