Our friends at the Woodland Trust want to make sure that everybody in the UK has the chance to plant a tree, so it’s giving away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities who want to plant on publicly-accessible land.

Its packs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Create homes for wildlife, or brighten up your view with year-round colour. Harvest fruit and nuts or grow your own log burner fuel.  Whether your plot is big or small, the Woodland Trust has the right pack for you.
