Successful applicants must be able to collect their trees directly from either of the two places helping us this year – Prees Heath Forest Nursery in the north of the county or John Holliday (formerly Potters Farm Tree Nursery) at Lower Hayton in the south. Full details of this year’s scheme, how it works and our online application form, can be found at the following webpage: http://www.shropshire.gov.uk/environment/trees-woodlands-and-hedges/shropshire-council-community-tree-scheme-202122/Further details with regards to collection will be sent to successful applicants. Applications are processed on a first come first served basis and we will close the scheme when all the available trees are allocated.
