A timely reminder from the Woodland Trust that the deadline is approaching for schools, community and youth groups to apply for Free Trees.
The trust has 4,000 free tree packs to give away in batches of up to 420. The deadline for applications is September 13. All you need to do is find a plot of land that would benefit from some tree planting, get the permission of the landowner and then apply.
If you are successful, the Woodland Trust wil provide the trees; you supply the volunteer planters and any necessary tree protection like stakes and canes.
All trees supplied will be young saplings about 20-40cm high, sourced and grown in the UK. They will be delivered in November.
