The Woodland Trust is offering community groups, youth groups and schools the chance to apply for packs of free trees for delivery in November 2013 and it is accepting applications until 13 September 2013.
Whether groups are interested in helping wildlife; creating a faith, or inter-faith, green space; planting for remembrance, creating a community garden or allotment; or just want to enhance their local area – any community groups are very welcome to apply for these free packs of saplings.
The Woodland Trust has 4,000 packs to give away this autumn and they come in three sizes – 30 saplings, 105 saplings and 420 saplings in various themes (hedge, copse, wildlife, wild harvest, year-round colour, future firewood and wetland).
Find out more about them and apply online at www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/communitytrees.
Best advice is to apply sooner rather than later as this offer is usually oversubscribed and may have to close early.
