Our tree planting and guidance is helping communities across the UK plant healthy happy trees, hedgerows and orchards.

Planting guidance

Planting a new tree and hedge – of the right kind and in the right place – is something we can all do to grow a greener future. Our guidance document contains helpful tips and information about the main things to think about when planting trees and hedges such as choosing your site, which species to buy and where to buy them, and how to care for your trees or hedgerow.



We have a range of opportunities for schools, volunteers and community groups available to help you plant trees and hedgerows in your area. Applications for the 2021/22 planting season have now closed and applications for the 2022/23 planting season will be opening in the coming months. Check our website and social media for updates.
