The Big Tree Plant
The Big Tree Plant, a campaign aimed at encouraging people and communities in England to plant more trees where they work and live, has re-opened its grants scheme for applications.
Over 30 projects from a wide range of community groups have so far been offered £1.6m funding as part of this scheme. These projects alone aim to plant an additional 295,000 trees over the coming four years – but we want to do more in order to meet the target of one million trees!
