Tree Council’s 2019 Tree Futures Grant Scheme 

Traditionally, the scheme offered help for tree planting through three separate programmes: Trees for Schools, Community Trees and Orchard Windfalls.  This year, they have simplified this process and have now just one grant on offer, which encompasses all the above Hedgerow planting is included in the scheme for the first time.

Any school or community group within the United Kingdom that is planning a project which actively involves children under the age of 16 is encouraged to apply for this grant to plant trees and hedges. They are able to fund projects between £300 and £1000 and successful applicants will receive up to 80% of their planting costs. 

The deadline for applications is 5pm, 17 May 2019, and successful applicants will be informed by the end of June, with planting normally taking place between 23rd of November to 1st of December. Find out how to apply here
