Volunteer with us
Volunteers are crucial to our work. We couldn’t protect and care for the UK’s woods and trees without them.

Across the UK, volunteers carry out a huge variety of roles to help plant and protect woods and trees.
They spot threatened woods that need our help, spread the word about the value of woods and trees, carry out practical tasks on site and much, much more. We are grateful to every one of them.

How you can help
We welcome every volunteer, whatever your skills or background, however much time you can give.
From looking for signs of tree disease to writing for our website, you can make a difference.

It's a two way thing
Every volunteer has a volunteer manager, an outline of the task and a risk assessment where needed.
We cover expenses and run a useful online communication platform just for volunteers.
We listen to your feedback.
You meet new people and learn new skills.
We even hold an annual awards ceremony to recognise volunteers’ huge contribution to our achievements.
What we do
We are the Woodland Trust. We plant, protect, restore and manage woods and trees. Everything we do is based in scientific research.
This kind of volunteering can fit around a busy life - you can do it as a one-off or once a week.
