The Forestry Commission: Urban Tree Challenge Fund – 31 May 2022

The Forestry Commission’s Urban Tree Challenge Fund has re-opened to applications from community and volunteer groups as well as Town Councils and individuals for tree planting projects in urban and peri-urban areas in England.

This fourth round of funding is open to applications from:

  • small organisations or community groups for between £10,000 and £30,000 for smaller, focused areas of planting;
  • block bids of over £125,000 with no upper limit to enable multiple projects that are either geographically dispersed or focused in one area to be submitted under one application.

The fund provides 50% of standard costs for planting and establishment. The remaining 50% must be met through match funding.

The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on the 31 May 2022.
