Grants for Community Trees – Deadline 30th August
The Big Tree Plant, a campaign to encourage people and communities to plant more trees in England’s towns, cities and neighbourhoods has announced that its funding programme is open for applications. £4 million is available (to March 2015) to support community groups to plant trees in towns, cities and residential areas throughout England.
Grants of between £500 and £25,000 are available to establish community-led tree planting projects in areas that would benefit most. The trees must be planted in streets or in green places that are open to all to visit or where local people will benefit from them. Groups working in areas where more trees would help to improve residents’ quality of life are strongly encouraged to apply for the funding. The scheme can fund work such as community involvement, site surveys and expert advice as well as trees, planting materials, labour, and tree care and maintenance.
