I hope all our local schools take this opportunity to plant more trees in their school grounds.
This grant is open to all schools within the United Kingdom with pupils aged 16 or under.
For ideas to inspire children to plant trees in their schools and celebrate this experience creatively as part of their curriculum, see our Tree Ties CD
We will fund trees of appropriate species, size and numbers, of which up to 4 may be fruit trees (but no more than that) on semi-vigorous, vigorous and very vigorous rootstocks.
If you wish to plant more than 4 fruit trees, please make a separate application for that part of the project to the Orchard Windfalls Fund.
For quick reference, our Trees for Schools Fund 2018 Eligibility Criteria is:
