Join us in celebrating 25 years of the Green Flag Award by planting a FREE Silver Birch Tree with any Van den Berk order!

We're celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Green Flag Awards by teaming up with Van den Berk Nurseries


Together, we are offering every Green Flag Award winning park in the UK and Europe a free Silver Birch tree when placing an order with Van den Berk, to be planted with a special commemorative plaque. The plaque and tree will showcase the long history of the Award, and highlight your park’s success in meeting the international standard for parks and green spaces year after year.

Carl McClean - International Development Manager for the Green Flag Award said:

"It's great to have one of Europe's foremost tree suppliers - Van den Berk Nurseries, on board to support our Silver Jubilee celebrations with this offer. Once planted, these commemorative trees will represent the longevity of the Green Flag Award program and all of our winners commitment to maintaining their parks to the recognised standard - year after year."

To claim your free tree, simply place an order for trees with Van den Berk, and quote your Green Flag Award winning park.
Van den Berk will then include a Silver Birch in a size that corresponds with 5% of the value of the order. The minimum order value to receive a tree is €2,500. or £2,500.

Plaques will be distributed directly by the Green Flag Award team. Green Flag Award winners can claim their free tree right up until the end of 2021.
