UK Community Tree Planting Programme

THIS FUND

IS NOW CLOSED.

Thank you for applying.

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.
