Become a Friend

By becoming a Friend of The Tree Council, you will help us put trees in school playgrounds, train the Tree Wardens who plant, care for and champion trees in their local communities, and act on issues of national concern – all of this for the price of a sandwich (and a coffee if you’re feeling generous). Just £3 a month makes a difference, and you'll get a copy of our bi-annual magazine Tree News too, as a thank you.

What your donation does

  • £4 could buy 600 birch seeds for our Tree Wardens to plant
  • £5 could plant a metre of fruiting hedgerow, for the local community and wildlife
  • £10 could buy a children’s toolkit, to get them outside and involved
  • £15 could plant and care for a tree until it's big enough to survive on its own
  • £50 could buy 3 spades for tree wardens to use planting trees in their community
  • £100 could buy 900 litres of mulch for newly planted trees and hedgerows
