Through the UK Community Tree Planting Programme, the International Tree Foundation aims to conserve, restore and protect the UK’s native species whilst raising community awareness of the importance of trees and forests to both the environment and human well-being.
Schools, community groups and non-governmental organisations within the UK can apply for grants of up to £10,000 for community-led tree-planting projects.
There are two tiers of funding available:
- Small scale: A maximum of £1,000 is available for projects of up to 1 year in duration. This could be small community woodland, orchards, hedging projects, etc.
- Larger scale: Projects to range from 1,000 – 10,000 trees, with a maximum price equivalent to £1.50/tree (inclusive of tree protection). Most suitable for community woodland or hedging projects
Trees must be planted in public / publicly accessible spaces: sites that are readily accessible to the public, including schools, parks, rights of way, and sites managed by community groups.
How to apply and for more information
Applications can be submitted at any time until the 16th of December 2022.
