Plant trees

You can be a part of growing a greener future. So far, we've planted 9.5 million trees in the National Forest, our next milestone is 10 million, and your support can help us to reach that target.

Make your mark. Plant a tree.

Trees are transformational, benefiting people, wildlife, and our environment. You can support tree planting in the National Forest in many ways, each helping to grow a greener future for everyone.

Dedicate a tree

Give the gift of a greener future by dedicating a tree. Each sapling you donate is helping to create woodland habitats that will benefit people and wildlife for years to come.

Dedicate a grove

Whether you want to dedicate in memory of a loved one, celebrate a special occasion, or simply want to give back, you can donate to plant a complete woodland grove.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
