Large scale planting

If you’re looking to plant a large number of trees on your farm or private land we can help.

We can offer you:

  • Tailored advice
  • Grants and funding
  • Trees and protection

All the trees we supply are sourced and grown in the UK.

You can also buy tree packs which will be delivered straight away that are suitable for planting large areas of land. 


Please note, due to popular demand we now only have funding available for the 2020 planting seasons: January-March 2020 and November-December 2020.

If you are planting in the Northern Forest then we still have trees available for planting in January-March and November-December 2019. This is thanks to the initial funding from Defra to kick start planting the 50million trees we need across the Northern Forest over 25 years. Get your application in as soon as possible to avoid delays and be part of the Northern Forest.

Think big with MOREwoods. Whether you want to plant a shelterbelt or harvest your own wood fuel, we’ll visit your site to take a look at where you want to plant and:

  • Help you design your woodland and select the most appropriate species mix
  • Make a bespoke site report
  • Assign a dedicated project officer who’ll help guide your application from start to finish.

If you plant the trees yourself, we’ll contribute at least 60% of the costs. If you would like a contractor to plant the trees and provide a weeding service for the first two years we’ll contribute 50% of the costs.

The contract option is available in England and Wales to anyone planting over one hectare. Our advice and support is free even if you decide not to plant.

Remember, if you require the trees quicker, packs can be purchased from the Woodland Trust shop.
