Tree planting advice

Thinking of planting trees, but need some help? Look no further.

Explore our advice section for:

  • Help with choosing your tree species
  • How and where to plant
  • Tips on caring for your trees.


We encourage the planting of native broadleaf trees because:

  • they are crucial for our wildlife – many native insects, birds and other animals would find it hard to survive without the food and shelter they provide
  • local plants are adapted to local soils and climate and often have lower maintenance requirements
  • once established, native plants can usually withstand long periods of dry weather
  • many will grow in difficult areas of the garden with little or no fertiliser.

Every tree that we provide comes from UK sourced and grown seeds.
