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, hedgerows and orchards in your area. Applications for the 2022/23 winter tree planting season will be opening in July. If you would like to receive a notification email once the fund goes live, enter your details here.
