    Woodland Trust free trees for schools and communities

    The Woodland Trust has announced that it is offering hundreds of thousands of free trees to community groups and schools. There are packs of 5, 30, 105 and 420 trees, to be delivered in November this year, ready for Tree Charter Day on the 23rd November.

    Who can apply?

    Schools across the UK, plus nurseries, colleges, universities and outdoor learning centres

    All kinds of different groups such as resident associations, sports clubs, parish councils, scouts, guides and many more.

    You don’t need to belong to an official organisation. You could even set up a group for the purpose of planting, but you must be not-for-profit. The most important thing is that your group is willing to take on the planning, planting and care of the saplings.

      Planting in the garden
      Plants will provide changing colours, shapes and character to your garden throughout the year.
      Planting trees and shrubs
      Trees and shrubs provide height, so give an extra dimension to your garden. With careful selection they can also provide colour for seasonal interest throughout the year whether with flowers, fruit, autumn leaves or winter silhouettes.
      Select the right size and number of trees to fit with the size of your garden, bearing in mind the mature height and spread. Look to have one or two trees in a small to medium garden. Too many trees or potentially large trees may outgrow their space.
      Which trees and shrubs are best for my garden?
      Take a look at the RHS' comprehensive guide to looking after garden trees and shrubs and see their list of suitable plants for different locations. These links will take to the RHS website.
