Funding for community groups and voluntary organisations across the UK to protect and plant trees in their local communities.
The Foundation offers grants to support the conservation, restoration and protection of the UK’s indigenous trees, woodlands, and forests, whilst promoting grassroots community engagement with tree planting and raising communal awareness of the importance of trees and forests to both the environment and human well-being.
