Getting Trees Planted Locally

There are Many Great Reasons to Plant Trees

There is huge interest in planting trees to help address climate change, but there are many other good reasons to plant them We can make sustainable tree planting happen by matching commitments to fund and plant trees, with our landowner contacts, contributing our expertise in tree planting, scheme design & aftercare. 

Getting Trees Planted in Bristol & Avon

Over a million trees have already been planted in the area and we want to work with you to do much more.  

How Individuals & Businesses Can Plant Trees

We have some great schemes: 

Our local contacts mean we always have tree planting schemes in development and each year we match these to donations for trees and if possible, offers of volunteer help.

£10 plants and cares for a small tree, £35 pays for a fruit tree planted at a local school and £325 pays for a street tree (planted by a local council). For large donations we can discount the small tree cost. 

Just make a donation here, or contact info@forestofavontrust.org with your proposal.
