The Tree Council actively supports community tree, hedgerow, and orchard projects that boost agricultural productivity and creating green spaces that promote physical and mental well-being. Current funding programmes are –

Branching Out

Branching Out provides grants ranging from £250 to £2,500 in value – with a streamlined process resulting in quicker decision making for those seeking funding below £500. Currently closed (Jan 2024), expect to open in new financial year.

Orchards for Schools

Schools can register for our Orchards for Schools grant and to receive their orchard and/ or hedgerow pack, an engaging set of supporting resources and training, designed by experts and teachers, that are linked to the national curriculum.

Network Rail Community Tree Planting Fund

The Tree Council and Network Rail are once again working in partnership to deliver a programme of community tree planting for the 2023/24 tree planting season.
