Schools and Community groups within the UK can apply for grants of between £300 and £1,500 to get communities and young people up to the age of 21 involved in tree and hedge planting and care this winter (November 2020 – March 2021).
The funding is being made available through the Tree Council’s Branching Out Fund. Applications will be considered as they are received and applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application within four weeks. There is no deadline for applications, but applicants must ensure that they can plan and execute their project, and claim the funding upon completion, by the end of March 2021.
In addition, free tree packs are available for schools supported by the Tree Angel Orchards Fund. Schools can register to hear when applications open.
