Fund description:

Schools and communities can apply for free tree packs to plant trees in school grounds and community spaces. The Woodland Trust is giving away hundreds of thousands of trees that can be planted as copses, hedges, shelter-belts or in other creative ways.

There are different packs available, each with species selected for a particular purpose:

  • Hedge
  • Copse
  • Wild harvest
  • Year-round colour
  • Working wood
  • Wild wood
  • Wildlife

Applications can be made by schools, colleges, nurseries and outdoor-education centres, as well as all kinds of different groups including residents associations, sports clubs, parish councils, scouts and guides.

If you’re applying as a school, your trees should be planted on either the school grounds, land the school has arranged regular access to or in an area that is publically accessible.

If you’re applying for a tree pack as a community group, the land needs to be accessible to the public.
