Trees for Life

27 Years of Tree Planting

Trees are our national treasures – and they need our help. With Bettys Trees for Life, we're working to keep our woodlands growing into the future.

Thanks to the Bettys Trees for Life Project we've been helping to plant and protect trees since 1990. We've planted 3 million trees around the world, including thousands of trees in our beautiful Yorkshire countryside.


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.
