Tree Charter Toolkit Document Cover

This guide sets out the Woodland Trust’s principles for supporting and protecting trees on a community level. It offers detailed advice for enthusiastic individuals or groups interested in the welfare of trees and woods in their local area.

The Tree Charter toolkit describes how you can get involved in local Charter Branches or start one on behalf of your community.

Charter Branches are local heroes, students, organisations, councils or other community groups that take action to embed the Tree Charter principles in their area. 

With this guide, you'll receive practical ideas and tips enabling you to plant more trees, contribute to the mapping of trees and woods, encourage others to understand their importance, and more.
