Woodland Trust Free Trees for Communities
Project Category: Registered charity
Do you know any communities, schools or groups that would benefit from free trees?
Each spring and autumn the Woodland Trust offers community groups, youth groups and schools the chance to apply for packs of free trees. Whether groups are interested in helping wildlife; creating a faith, or inter-faith, green space; planting for remembrance, creating a community garden or allotment; or just want to enhance their local area – any community groups are very welcome to apply for our free packs of saplings.
The packs of saplings come in three sizes 30 saplings, 105 saplings and 420 saplings in various themes (hedge, copse, wildlife, wild harvest, year-round colour, working wood, wild wood and wetland). A new feature of the scheme is that you can now apply for more than one pack with 420 saplings being the maximum quantity. You can find out more about them and apply online at http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/freetrees
Groups should apply sooner rather than later as we are usually oversubscribed and may have to close early. Here are some quotes from pack recipients:
“The free trees are very much appreciated and are already making a difference to the community spirit!”
“Bring people together and do something positive for the environment, leaving a legacy for future generations”.
“We’re really proud, not only of our new saplings but of how we got everyone to co-operate with the planting”
“These trees will eventually make a horrid area green and pleasant”
“One small child said I can come back in 60 years and say I planted that”
“Everyone at some stage of their life should plant a tree. Do it, remember it and make it count”
