Trees for Life

Help us to celebrate our long-standing passion for trees by making an impact in your own community.

Our Trees for Life Fund is open to applications for projects that will make a difference to the Yorkshire landscape - from native tree planting to improved woodland access, enhanced habitats and environmental education.

If you work with a small charity, community or voluntary group or school in Yorkshire, then you can apply for a grant of up to £4000 to support your environmental project.

Planting Trees

National Treasures

We want to raise awareness of the value of trees and woodlands as 'national treasures' in our home communities - beautifying local spaces and supporting a huge variety of wildlife.

With help from the environmental regeneration charity, Groundwork, we're working with children in Yorkshire schools to nurture seeds gathered from native British species to plant 3,000 trees locally in the first year’ to ‘plant 10,000 trees and explore and enjoy their local environment.

Activity Pack for Primary School Teachers

As part of our Trees for Life work, we’ve created a pack designed to support primary school teachers who want to help their pupils learn about trees and discover the joys of their local environment.

It contains a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that have been tested through our Seedlings at Schools programme, through which we worked with thousands of school children around Yorkshire to plant saplings and learn about the importance of trees. We hope the pack will show how fun and simple it can be to make the most of the natural world on your doorstep.
