I took my children to see the wood I played in every weekend as a child. They swung on the same rope swings and did all the things I used to do. Our family membership shows them how much fun woods can be, plus we're supporting the Woodland Trust who give everyone access to these amazing places.
Your family membership - making a difference

Help us plant trees
We urgently need more trees to tackle the climate crisis. Your family’s membership could help us plant new native trees with schools and communities right here in the UK.

Protect woods and wildlife
Our members help us care for more than 1,000 woods, from tranquil urban oases to irreplaceable ancient woodlands. With your family’s support we can continue to protect these precious habitats and ensure wildlife thrives.
Inspire a new generation of nature-lovers
We work with 12,000 schools across the UK, getting kids learning outdoors and sparking a lifelong love of trees and wildlife. But we can only do this with help from members like you.

Improve health and wellbeing
Green spaces are vital for our physical and mental health and trees play an important role – whether it’s reducing air pollution or alleviating stress. With your family’s support we can create a greener, cleaner environment for our children to grow up in.
How we spend your money
We spend 80p of every £1 you give directly on trees, woods and wildlife. The other 20p helps us raise the next £1. But don’t just take our word for it.
