With your help, we’ve planted more than 43 million trees since we began in 1972 and worked with thousands of landowners, schools and local authorities.
From single trees in thousands of gardens to hedges and whole woods, the UK is looking greener than it did four decades ago. But we need to plant more.
You might have just one or two goals in mind when planting trees: to attract garden birds, give fiery autumn colour or create a shady spot.
Whatever your reason, trees have far-reaching benefits for all of us.
Trees woods and wildlife
Woods and trees are home to more wildlife than any other landscape, providing food and shelter for thousands of species including our most loved animals.
A mix of native trees future-proofs the landscape and helps it bounce back from pests and diseases. Buy your pack now.
Woods and trees reduce air pollution, keep cities cool and are proven to make our neighbourhoods happier and healthier. A walk among trees enhances our mood, reduces stress and improves our mental wellbeing.
See how the owners of a North Wales wood used timber to save money on a factory renovation project.
We want to make sure everyone in the UK has the chance to plant a tree. So we’re giving away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities.
If you’re looking to plant lots of trees, we have the trees, grants and funding schemes to help.
Thinking of planting trees, but need some help? Look no further.
