How 11,000 children planted 66,000 new trees

18 June 2018

Trees for Learning has completed its second year – and the results are impressive with the programme 8% ahead of target and data from schools indicating a positive impact on children's wellbeing.
Trees for Learning is a major project to encourage schools to plant trees within school grounds and local green spaces. It forms part of DEFRA's pledge to support schools to plant 1 million trees by 2020. 

England's Community Forests are working together to hit the target of helping primary schools plant 164,000 trees over four years.

We help schools decide what to plant and where by providing expert design advice, we provide support on planting days and ensure that plans are in place for long-term management and use by children.
