About the campaign

The Big Tree Plant
The Big Tree Plant launched in December 2010. It’s a campaign to increase the number of trees planted in towns, cities and neighbourhoods throughout England.
The Big Tree Plant is a national partnership bringing together the wide range of organisations who already plant trees, as well as civic and community groups working with Defra and the Forestry Commission. The logos of the national campaign partners are at the bottom of this page.

Campaign aims

The campaign is aiming to support the Big Society by getting more people involved in planting and caring for trees and establishing local community tree projects throughout England.

Current projects

Three exciting new projects have been funded by Defra and the Forestry Commission to get tree-planting underway this season:
Keep Britain Tidy - 100,000 trees across 750 sites
  • Keep Britain Tidy are working with BTCV to plant trees in areas that are accessible to local communities and will be planted by children, volunteers and community groups.
The NHS Forest – 65,000 trees across 25 sites
  • These projects will bring together a range of professionals and volunteers to plant trees on NHS sites and community land.
The Tree Council - 1000+ trees across four sites
  • The Tree Council will work with the local council and volunteer tree wardens in the Walsall area of Birmingham to plant an orchard with the local community.
A great idea from the United \Kingdom Government - encouraging people to plant trees.
