Free trees for your Transition initiative to mark the anniversary of World War One
By rob hopkins 12th May 2014
This August marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The Woodland Trust is honouring all those who took part in the war effort by planting millions of trees that will stand as a tribute for centuries to come. Will you stand with us by planting a free tree pack in your community?
We have over 4000 packs to give away in autumn and they come in three sizes – 30 saplings, 105 saplings and 420 saplings in various themes (hedge, copse, wildlife, wild harvest, year-round colour, working wood, wild wood and wetland). You can apply for more than one pack and theme with 420 saplings being the maximum quantity. You can find out more about them and apply online here, but I’d advise groups to apply sooner rather than later.
Watch our short video clip to find out why thousands of community groups and schools across the UK have been digging in to plant free tree packs in their neighbourhood.
Please feel free to forward to share this information with any group or school that might be interested, add it to your website or include it in your newsletter – many thanks to those who have already helped to spread the word!
Deadline for applications is 4 September but we may need to close early if oversubscribed.
If you have any questions at all please do get in touch.
