Apply for our giveaway saplings to plant in your school grounds.

We give away trees to schools and community groups across the UK every March and November (to coincide with tree-planting season).

They are ideal for gardening and nature clubs. They also help to improve your school grounds and encourage more wildlife to your local area.

Discover other benefits of planting trees in your school grounds on the Eco-Schools website.

Schools can apply for packs of 30, 105 or 420 saplings. You can apply each March and November for more trees, until your project is complete.
