500,000 free trees are up for grabs

The Woodland Trust is putting over half-a-million trees up for grabs to be planted at the end of this year.

Schools and community groups can apply online for free tree packs – in different sizes and themes – to make their schools, neighbourhoods and communities greener. The packs will be delivered this November.

Community groups such as sports clubs, Brownies, Scouts and many more can apply for either a small pack (30 trees), medium pack (105 trees), or a large pack (420 trees).

Schools are automatically eligible for free packs of 30 trees, in either a 'hedge' or 'copse' theme, but can apply to be considered for the medium and large packs if they wish.

To apply for your free pack, visit www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/freetrees.
