With your help, we’ve planted more than 50 million trees since we began in 1972 and worked with thousands of landowners, schools and local authorities.
From single trees in thousands of gardens to hedges and whole woods, the UK is looking greener than it did four decades ago. But we need to plant more.
You might have just one or two goals in mind when planting trees: to attract garden birds, give fiery autumn colour or create a shady spot.
Whatever your reason, trees have far-reaching benefits for all of us.
Trees woods and wildlife
Woodland is home to a wealth of wildlife. If we don't protect what we have left and work to create woodlands of the future, we stand to lose more than just trees.
Woods and trees reduce air pollution, keep cities cool and are proven to make our neighbourhoods happier and healthier. A walk among trees enhances our mood, reduces stress and improves our mental wellbeing.
See how the owners of a North Wales wood used timber to save money on a factory renovation project.
We want to make sure everyone in the UK has the chance to plant a tree. So we’re giving away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities.
If you’re looking to plant lots of trees, we have the trees, grants and funding schemes to help.
Thinking of planting trees, but need some help? Look no further.
Buying UK sourced and grown trees is the best way to prevent the spread of imported pests and diseases.
