Funding/Grants for planting trees and woods

There are a variety of sources providing funding for tree planting and woodland creation. The key is finding the right one for your project. Information on funding becomes out of date very quickly.

However Tree Planting Grants are currently available from:

The Woodland Trust
Applications are now open for Community Tree packs which will be delivered in early November 2015. This is on-going for the foreseeable future.

The Tree Council Futures Grant Scheme for Schools and the Community
Any school or community group within the United Kingdom that is planning a project which actively involves children under the age of 16 is encouraged to draw on the fund to plant trees and make a greener future. The project is focussed on National Tree Week (28 November - 6 December 2015).

Funds are also available for the planting of orchards by schools and community groups through the Orchard Windfalls Fund. Projects between £100 and £700 can be funded and successful applicants will receive up to 75% towards their planting costs. For example, if your project totals £700, The Tree Council would offer up to £525. The remaining 25% will need to be secured by your school or organisation.

Contact the Woodland Trust or Vicky Roscoe for assistance.
