Plant a tree
Plant a tree today and you'll be helping to support our aim of planting and establishing 20 million trees by 2030.
Over 125 years ago we set out to open up the natural world so everyone could explore vibrant green spaces like parks, woodlands and the countryside. The coronavirus crisis has made us all realise just how important this need is and that we cannot take nature for granted. Trees also breathe life into our world, and it's vital we plan for the future of woodlands to tackle climate change.
You can plant a tree for yourself, as a gift to someone special or in memory of a loved one. Whichever you choose, you'll help nature to thrive so that future generations can enjoy spending time in the shade of these beautiful giants. Donate £5 or more and you'll also receive a digital certificate by email, which you can keep for yourself or send to someone else.
How to plant a tree
- Choose an amount from the options below and make your donation.
- Once you've donated to our plant a tree fund, you'll receive a confirmation email straight away.

Our suggested minimum donation amount is £5 as this is what it costs us to plant one new sapling. No matter what the size of your gift, your donation to our plant a tree fund will help create beautiful green spaces for people and wildlife to thrive.
At the moment, you won't be able to 'tag' a specific tree, or choose a location for a tree to be planted. However, we have an ambition to plant and establish 20 million trees by 2030, and your donation today can directly help create a living memorial that benefits nature for everyone, for ever.
Our tree planting work so far...
- We planted 76,000 saplings in 2020 thanks to your donations
- They were a mix of 14 species of tree including oak, beech and crab apple
- One tree could remove 1 tonne of CO2 from our air over its lifetime
Why plant a tree
The coronavirus crisis has thrown our need for nature sharply into focus, bringing a stronger need to work together to overcome the climate crisis. Your support will make a difference. Give today and we'll plant a tree as part of our plan to plant and establish 20 million trees by 2030.
When you plant a tree, this contributes to reducing emissions, as these hardy plants work hard to lock up carbon. These new trees will also open up new habitats for wildlife such as the red squirrel, the hazel dormouse, the greater spotted woodpecker and other birds like the song thrush and the red kite.
You'll help these historical, beautiful and natural places to thrive for ever, and many more people like you will be able to create new memories with their friends and family in leafy green spaces.
