There are a number of organisations that can provide helpful advice and guidance about planting trees and looking after them once planted. Many also offer free trees to schools and community groups. Below is a selection of such organisations which you may find helpful to contact.


Woodland Trust

We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. But we can't achieve our vision without you. Every sapling that we provide is UK sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track an individual tree. Over the next 10 years, we’re aiming to plant 64 million trees and we can’t do it without you. Whatever you want to plant, whether it’s one tree in your garden or a whole wood, we can help

Events

National Tree Week

23rd November - 1st December 2019

National Tree Week is the UK's largest annual tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season (November to March each year). The Tree Council, one of the UK’s leading charities for trees, first established National Tree Week in March 1975 in response to the national replanting required after the outbreak of Dutch Elm disease.

National Tree Week is a great chance for communities to do something positive for their local treescape. Each year, The Tree Council's member organisations such as voluntary bodies and local authorities, up to 200 schools and community groups, their 6,000 strong network of volunteer Tree Wardens and many others, support the initiative by setting up fun, worthwhile and accessible events, inspiring upward of a quarter of a million people to get their hands dirty and together plant trees.
