The Woodland Trust has announced that it has thousands of free tree packs available to community groups and schools.
The trees are available for planting on an area that is accessible to the public so that it can be used and enjoyed by others. If you’re applying as a school your trees should be planted on either the school grounds, land the school has arranged regular access to or in an area that is publically accessible. If you’re applying for a tree pack as a community group, the land needs to be accessible to the public. You should also make sure your local community are aware of your plans to plant and are happy for you to go ahead. A group or school can apply for up to 420 trees in each application cycle or season.
Past recipients include:
Community Garden and Allotment in Barry.
South Glamorgan and Bellsquarry Primary School.
Livingston where pupils have planted dozens of apple trees to create a community orchard in Bellsquarry Wood.
