About Us

The Tree Council is the UK's lead charity for trees, promoting their importance in a changing environment. It was founded as the national tree planting campaign that would follow up the success of Plant A Tree In '73, encourage action for trees and run National Tree Week.

We are still working in partnership with communities, organisations and government to make trees matter to everyone.

Our work has expanded and we are responsible for the annual community action programme that includes Seed Gathering Season, National Tree Week and Walk in the Woods month, supporting the groups organising local events.

We also co-ordinate and manage our national volunteer Tree Warden Scheme, fundraise and distribute grants for tree, bluebell, wild flower and hedge planting and work with our partners on an agenda for change that includes the Tree Care Campaign, the Green Monuments Campaign and the Hedge Tree Campaign.

We are a registered charity and rely on donations and sponsorship income. We also have a Friends scheme for individual supporters. If you can help us to continue our work, please do get in touch.
