Tree Futures Grant Scheme

9th April 2019

The Tree Council has brought together its three schemes Community Trees, Orchard Windfalls and Trees for Schools into one new fund called “Tree Futures“.

Grants of £300 to £1,000 are available for community groups and schools wanting to run tree planting projects during National Tree Week (23 November to 1 December). The funder will fund 80% of the amount awarded and your group will fund 20%.

Projects must show that children up to the age of 16 will be involved in the tree planting or related educational activities.

What can be funded?

  • Trees, hedges and orchard trees.
  • Reasonable costs of supports and aids – stakes, ties, guards, fertiliser, mulch, soil amelioration (where appropriate).
  • Trees of appropriate species, size and numbers, including fruit trees (apples and pears only) on semi-vigorous, vigorous and very vigorous rootstocks.
  • Trees must be planted in the ground and the funder prefers bare root stock.


Please read the general information and guidance notes before completing the application form with a breakdown of the costs you’re applying for.

The deadline for applications is 17 May 2019 (5pm).
