Getting Trees Planted in Bristol & Avon
Over a million trees have already been planted in the area as part of the Forest of Avon and with existing woodlands, provide a huge range of local benefits.
Climate change and ash dieback disease (which could kill 15% of local trees), mean that we need your help to plant many more trees.
How Can I Support Tree Planting?
Whether you have calculated your carbon footprint, or just want to improve your local area, we have some great ways you can help make a difference.
£10 plants and provides long-term care 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). Larger donations may buy more trees for large projects.

Planting Farm Woodlands
Whatever your interest in planting trees and however large the scheme, we can provide free, impartial advice to get you on your way (and if required, consultancy to deliver the scheme).
You will be advised by Jon Clark who has worked at a senior level in community forestry for 30 years. Over this time Jon has worked closely with farmers & landowners to plant farm woodlands, meeting a wide-range of objectives. Jon is also a Chartered Landscape Architect and Town Planner.
A range of incentives for woodland creation are now available: Woodland Creation Grant (for all types of woodland 3ha+), Woodland Carbon Fund (large-scale productive forestry) and the Woodland Carbon Guarantee, where carbon sequestration is an objective and can be added to both the above. There are a also grants to cover the costs of woodland planning and design, so our involvement in this would be cost neutral.
Carbon Offsetting & Trees
Contact us to discuss this in more detail. Many companies and individuals want to plant trees to offset their carbon use. Where these offers comply with the Woodland Carbon Code, they can provide additional funds for woodland creation and we can broker arrangements between landowners and these third parties.
Where a robust methodology is used to calculate carbon use and the Woodland Carbon Code is used to calculate its uptake by trees, we may be able to accept donations and pass these on to landowners, provided the offset is not double-counted. Donations need to reflect the whole life costs of planting & establishing trees.
