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.

Plant trees to lock up the UK's unavoidable carbon emissions. For areas of 3ha or more, the scheme pays landowners and farmers who create new woodland for the carbon credits they generate.
