Watch this short video which gives you a taste of what our community tree planting events are like.
Our workshops involve communities in their local areas in tree planting for all ages, and outdoor exploration and games for children. Our workshop leaders are forest school trained and highlight how trees and plants are the fundamental basis of all life, and crucial to maintaining a sustainable environment.
We invite all ages to participate, and envisage that our involvement of children and young people will help to inspire the next generation to address climate change with environmental solutions.
We can design bespoke tree planting events for all audiences. Our workshop leaders tailor the workshops to suit a variety of different, groups from schools to community groups.
Our values are
Environmentalism • Community • Engagement • Participation • Integration
We aim to cultivate a lasting legacy of environmental sustainability by engaging local communities in tree planting. We believe that participation in our workshops will contribute to social integration at a local level.

This global day of celebration of forests raises awareness of the importance of all types of woodlands and trees and celebrates the many ways in which they sustain and protect us.
Three wonderful things for you remember from today:
1. Forests and trees store carbon helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change in and around urban areas.
2. Urban trees are excellent air filters, removing harmful pollutants in the air.
3. Urban green spaces, including forests, encourage active and healthy lifestyles, improve mental health, prevent disease, and provide a place for people to socialise
Happy chilly start of spring!

On #InternationalDayOfHappiness it is worth noting that trees close to where we live don't just look good, they actually makes us happier. That's the conclusion of a major study that followed 10,000 Brits—for 17 years—as they moved around the UK. https://t.co/vefmKOV4SV
