Trees for Climate is a five-year woodland creation programme. In Nottinghamshire the programme is delivered by Greenwood Community Forest with help from the Sherwood Forest Trust.

Are you a landowner, farmer or school with land suitable for planting trees?

Are you in the Greenwood Community Forest area?

The Trees for Climate programme offers flexible and competitive grants. It’s versatile and can support schemes from 0.1ha up, to full woodland creation of several hectares. Hedgerows with trees can be created to enhance connectivity. Low density planting, orchards and mixed woodlands are all acceptable.

Local experts can offer free support to plant, grow and manage your new woodland.

Why plant trees?

Creating new woodlands is a proven way to help tackle the effects of climate change.

Trees can enhance your land and business by:

  • Diversifying your business and generating income
  • Sheltering crops and livestock
  • Cutting pollution
  • Improving soil, water and air quality
  • Supporting pollinators
  • Providing habitats for wildlife
  • Reducing flooding, water flow and soil erosion
  • Providing fruits and nuts

The scheme offers:

· A bespoke service that includes visiting you on site to talk though your project and assess your land.

· A friendly local team with years of tree-planting experience, who will help to keep the process as simple as possible

· Grants of up to 100% of the costs of tree-planting, including fencing, tree-guards, stakes etc.

· A funded, ongoing maintenance plan for up to 15 years to ensure success.
