Why plant trees on a large scale?

Planting a single tree has benefits for people, wildlife and the environment. Those benefits vastly increase when planting a whole woodland.

If you manage a farm or private land, integrating trees can bring huge benefits – and there’s no need to take large areas out of production. They can help increase biodiversity, provide shelter, prevent soil erosion, reduce flooding and much more.

For schools, communities and neighbourhoods, trees make our surroundings happier, healthier places to be.

Please note:

We are now closed for MOREwoods and MOREhedges tree pack applications for this planting season. We will re-open for applications to plant next winter (November 2021 to March 2022) later this spring.

If you have already ordered and have any queries, please contact the woodland creation team at plant@woodlandtrust.org.uk, or call us on 0330 333 3300 and select option one when prompted.
