Are you ready to #PlantForOurFuture?

National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, running from Saturday 27 November to Sunday 5 December. Across the country, people will be planting thousands of trees to mark the start of the winter tree planting season. How are you getting involved? 

Plant a tree with us!

Trees and hedgerows are some of the most powerful tools we have in the fight against climate change. And the good news is that we can all make a difference by planting a tree! Whether you plant a tree in a pot on your doorstep, a hedge in your garden or organise a community event at a local park, every tree will help us grow a greener future together. Download our tree planting guide to find out more about what tree to choose, where to plant and how to do it!

If you want to plant as part of a team, why not get in touch with your local Tree Warden Network and find out whether they’re organising any planting events near you?
