UK Community Tree Planting Programme

THIS FUND

IS OPEN

If you are looking for funding to plant trees in the areas listed, contact us: programmes@internationaltreefoundation.org

Want to plant trees in your area?

If your region of the UK is on the list below and you know/are a community group who want to plant trees – apply!

We support tree planting globally but also locally!  We’re based in Oxford and we need more trees here too! We have up to £1,000 per project to support one-year projects in the following areas:

Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Hampshire.

 

The Programme supports community projects that will:

  • Conserve, restore and protect indigenous trees and woodlands, forests, habitats and associated biodiversity
  • Support community engagement in tree planting to promote reforestation and to increase awareness of the importance of trees and forests to environmental and human well-being
  • Encourage social cohesion and inclusion

 

To be eligible for funding from this round of the UK Community Tree Planting Programme your organisation must be community-based e.g. a school, community group or non-governmental organisation and you must have signed permission from the owner or manager of the land indicating that your project meets legal requirements.

 

ITF’s priorities are to support community-based tree planting initiatives in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Hampshire that:

 

  • Plant and conserve indigenous tree species in publicly accessible sites
  • Engage community members in tree planting and enjoying the benefits of woodlands
  • Have clear plans for maintenance and sustainability

Closing date for applications: Monday 30th September 2019.
