We are leading The Big Climate Fightback
Help us fight for the future of the planet by being one in a million people pledging to plant a tree on 30 November 2019.
Every tree counts
Trees are the ultimate multi-taskers, helping to combat the two environmental emergencies facing our planet: climate change and biodiversity loss.
They absorb carbon, fight flooding, reduce pollution, nurture wildlife and make landscapes more resilient.
Reducing our carbon emissions will never be enough. It’s vital we grow a UK-wide patchwork of trees and woods - not just by planting, but also through natural regeneration. The woods, hedges and green spaces we create buffer existing habitats, tackle climate change and reverse wildlife decline – all at the same time.
Ways to plant your tree
Pledge to plant a tree in your garden or take part in one of our tree planting events happening across the UK. Because #EveryTreeCounts.
- Plant in your garden.
- Plant in your school.
- If your local council permits - plant in parks and public spaces.

Landowners are doubling their efforts
Applications for our MOREwoods subsidised tree packs have doubled. Thanks to our funding, landowners will plant 400 hectares of new woodland this autumn and winter.

Communities are coming together
Our community tree packs have had a bumper year. This November 3,400 neighbourhood groups and schools who applied for free tree packs will plant 716,000 trees across the UK. Each one a climate change warrior.
We're also repeating last year's partnership with London's Mayor offering free trees to thousands of Londoners.
Mobilising a million pledgers is huge, but together we can shout our message loud and clear...
