22 September – 22 October

Grow the Trees of the Future

As the nights draw in it’s tempting to hunker inside – but this is the best time of year to explore your local woods or nearest park, and gather the seeds, nuts and fruits that will grow to become the next generation of life-giving trees, shrubs and hedgerows.

Force for Nature

Get gathering!

The Autumn Equinox is the official start of The Tree Council’s Seed Gathering Season.

Seed gathering is fun, free and easy. Wherever you live, whatever your age, you can get involved. You don’t need to be a tree expert or have any special equipment – just a love of trees and nature and lots of enthusiasm!

“Seed Gathering Season is a wonderful opportunity for us all to come together and gather seed from local trees and nurture them to become young saplings, which can be planted locally to benefit future generations.”

– Sara Lom, The Tree Council CEO

Free online talks

Each Seed Gathering Season, the Tree Council runs free online talks each Wednesday lunchtime, including a seed gathering masterclass, tips on grafting and an insight into the wonderful world of seeds.
