The Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity. We create havens for wildlife by planting millions of trees every year, campaign to protect ancient woodland, and restore damaged woods so they can breathe again.
With your help, we’ve planted almost 50 million trees since we began in 1972 and worked with thousands of farmers, landowners, schools and community groups.
We believe planting a single tree has benefits for people, wildlife and the environment. Those benefits vastly increase when planting a whole woodland.
If you manage a farm or private land, integrating trees can benefit you too – and there’s no need to take large areas out of production. Trees help increase biodiversity, provide shelter, prevent soil erosion, reduce flooding, mitigate climate change and much more.
If you’re looking to plant lots of trees, we have the trees, grants and funding schemes to help. Our expert advisers can help you put the right trees in the right place to achieve your vision.
