Tree planting: Woodland Trust ready to deliver 4,750 'tree packs' to schools and communities
More than 4,700 Woodland Trust tree packs are now available - at no cost - for schools and communities across the UK.
Applications are accepted all year round but trees can only be delivered in March and November. "This is when young trees are dormant, so it’s the perfect time to plant", explains the Woodland Trust.
This is the reason why applications for November delivery will close in few days, on 9 September 2016.
The initiative, funded by Defra, Sainsbury’s, IKEA FAMILY, players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Yorkshire Tea, aims to encourage local wildlife, protect British landscape against tree disease and create new wooded areas.
