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 almost 208,000 taking root this year
Over 10,000 volunteers got stuck into tree planting
including 3,003 taking part in corporate volunteering days
over 14,000 school kids have learned about trees and healthy eating this year
and we delivered 28 projects in 22 cities in the UK
