Trees are essential to human life. It’s impossible to overstate how crucial they are. They produce the oxygen we breathe, store carbon in their trunks and roots, protect soils from erosion, reduce flooding and air pollution, and provide medicines, materials, food and shelter for millions of species on Earth, including us! Growing a tree from a seed is an easy, simple act and can help reconnect us to our shared natural world.
This guide has been produced by a team of experienced tree growers who want to share their love of trees and how to grow them, including: The Tree Council, Moor Trees, Cornwall Council and Norfolk County Council.
The Tree Grower's Guide provides general guidance about collecting, processing and growing trees from seeds and cuttings.
