School and community tree packs

Stock update
School Packs: Autumn tree packs for schools are now fully subscribed.
Community Tree Packs: Packs of all sizes are still available.

We have 4,750 tree packs to give away to school and community groups for planting this Autumn. We will be delivering the trees from 2-6 November 2015, so have a look at the information below and see if we can help your community.

These have been generously funded by lead partners Sainsbury’s, IKEA FAMILY, Yorkshire Tea, players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Biffa Award; also funded by WHSmith and Wilko.

How does it work?

Communities and schools can apply for our free tree packs twice a year which will be sent out in March and November, available in qualities of 30, 105 or 420.

The packs come in different mixes of tree species so you can choose the best one for your project. We accept applications all year round, but only send trees out twice a year – in March and November – when the trees are dormant and ready to plant.
