We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for The Tree Council’s Tree Futures Grant Scheme.
Traditionally, the scheme offered help for tree planting through three separate programmes: Trees for Schools, Community Trees and Orchard Windfalls. This year, we have simplified this process and have now just one grant on offer, which encompasses all the above. We are also thrilled to announce that we will be including hedgerow planting in the scheme for the first time.
Any school or community group within the United Kingdom that is planning a project which actively involves children under the age of 16 is encouraged to apply for this grant to plant trees and hedges, and make a greener future.
The Tree Council's National Tree Week –- is the focus for these projects and successful applicants organise their planting events in conjunction with our annual celebration of the new tree planting season.
We are able to fund projects between £300 and £1000 and successful applicants will receive up to 80% of their planting costs. For example, if your project totals £1000, The Tree Council would offer up to £800. The remaining £200 will need to be secured by your school or organisation.
The deadline for applications is 5pm, 17 May 2019, and successful applicants will be informed by the end of June, with planting normally taking place between 23rd of November to 1st of December.
