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 250,000 taking root this year
Over 20,000 people engaged with us about planting and protecting trees this year
international project participants took part in overseas projects
over 24,000 pupils engaged in our school programmes this year
and this year we delivered 40 planting projects in 40 urban areas
