Connecting people with trees across the UK
The Tree Council (founded in 1973) is one of the UK’s leading charities for trees, promoting their importance in a changing environment and working in partnership with communities, organisations and government to make trees matter to everyone. As the coalition body for a diverse range of organisations, the Council focuses on getting more trees, of the right kind, in the right places; better care for all trees of all ages and inspiring effective action for trees.
Working with volunteers, members and communities
The charity works with its national network of volunteer Tree Wardens and member organisations to engage people in biodiversity and environmental issues and to promote tree planting and conservation in town and country. A major part of this is achieved through its annual Community Action Programme which includes Walk in the Woods month, Seed Gathering Season and National Tree Week (celebrated every year since March 1975), as well as through supporting groups organising local events. It also offers a grants programme for UK schools and communities to plant trees, orchards and hedgerows and create woodland habitats.
