We are the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by planting trees in cities.
We get stuck in with local communities to cultivate lasting change in their neighbourhoods – whether it’s revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments or getting people excited about growing, foraging and eating healthy food.
That's how many trees we've planted to date
with over 100,000 taking root this year
Over 6000 volunteers got stuck into tree planting
including 858 taking part in corporate volunteering days
over 16,000 school kids have learned about trees and healthy eating this year
and we delivered 34 planting projects in 26 cities
