Volunteer Tree Planting

Volunteer Tree Planting

We're supporting varied planting projects this season across the West of England and slightly beyond, which means we need all hands on spades!

We'll have plenty of volunteering opportunities available across this year's planting season... And by joining one of our group planting sessions, along with feeling pretty good for giving a little bit back to the natural world, you'll be spending time outdoors, which has proven benefits for our mental wellbeing and physical health!

Interested in volunteering? Head to our Eventbrite page to sign up and find out more: Forest of Avon Trust Events | Eventbrite

Our Eventbrite will be updated on a regular basis, so if you can't see a location/ date that suits you now, please check back over the coming weeks.

Prepare for mud and rain, and for the satisfaction of making the world a greener place!

Corporate Days

Does your employer offer volunteering days? Or do you have a group of colleagues who would like to spend a day doing something good for the environment? Our corporate volunteering days are the perfect opportunity to give back to nature, connect with your team and enjoy the many benefits of spending time outdoors!

  •  Learn how to plant trees and look after them through varied seasonal tasks, including tree planting, woodland maintenance and coppicing.
  •  Leave work behind, breathe in the fresh air and soak up the rewards of spending time in nature – proven to benefit our health and wellbeing.
  •  Support your local community forest and our big vision to expand the Forest of Avon and bring the benefits of trees to everyone.
