Grants for Planting Trees (UK)

The Wilderness Foundation is a strong supporter or tree planting through our project Kirisia in Kenya and also through our work with Trees for Life here in the UK. We thought others might also be interest in some of the funding opportunities available in this field that can be accessed for smalller local projects:

Heritage Trees"The Tree Council, a national charity that promotes the planting and conservation of trees in town and countryside has two grant schemes available for 2007. These are the Trees for Schools Fund and the Communities Tree Fund. Under these funds grants of up to £700 are available both to schools and community groups proposing to undertake well-planned tree planting projects starting in 2007 during National Tree Week, 21st November to 2nd December. The closing date for both funding streams is the 31st May 2007". - We heard about this through SEL.

The Tree Council also have a set of interesting books in their bookshop including the one pictured above the right called Heritage Trees...
