‘The purpose of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit.’

The Tree Council wants to see healthy, thriving and diverse treescapes across the UK for years to come. We believe we can make that happen by working together to plant, care for and protect trees. We do this through Ccommunity engagement, influencing policy and conducting practical science and research into our treescape are core to achieving this.

Working together for the love of trees.

  • 7.5 million trees planted (so far) thanks to the dedication of our volunteer Tree Wardens
  • Over 10,000 trees planted in schools each year through our community grants scheme, and 1,000s of young people given the opportunity to plant, care for and learn about trees
  • 30 million hours of volunteer time given by our amazing Tree Wardens over 30 years
  • Our Ash Dieback Action Plan Toolkit for Local Authorities is helping authorities around the country plan and manage the impacts of ash dieback disease
  • Our National Tree Week 2019 campaign raised an incredible £1.68m for a cross-sector fund to plant orchards, fruiting hedgerows and other tree projects around the country with our media partners the Daily Mail.

We’re better together.
