National Tree Week 2016

National Tree Week  – a great chance to celebrate and promote the importance of our nation’s trees and tree planting.  This year, the event runs from 24 November – 4 December.  What will you plant this year? First celebrated in 1975, it’s the UK’s largest tree celebration annually launching the start of the winter tree planting season.

Want to be a part of it?

Running from 24 November – 4 December, National Tree Week 2016 heralds the start of another exciting tree planting season.  The Tree Council’s member organisations, voluntary bodies, schools and community groups support the organised activities. If you add in the 8,000 Tree Wardens, the event encourages over a quarter of a million people to get planting and introduces around a million trees into the country’s planting projects.
