We've partnered with the National Garden Scheme to get the word out there - that the UK needs more trees.

Trees are a powerful weapon in the fight against climate change. They absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it for centuries - in their roots, leaves and even the soil around them.

They can also help alleviate some of the cruel effects of climate change by:

  • Preventing flooding
  • Reducing city temperatures
  • Reducing air pollution
  • Keeping soil nutrient-rich
  • Providing havens for wildlife

Show your support

As garden owners and visitors, you can play a role in protecting trees in gardens. By planting trees in your own garden, visiting tree collections and supporting our work, you'll help ensure this important habitat and heritage is safeguarded for generations to come.
