Branching Out Fund
Grant funding to plant trees with young people - The Tree Council 'Branching Out Fund' is open - apply now!
If you are a school or community group who would like to plant trees or hedgerows in your local area this winter, we will support well-planned projects between £300 - £1,500. It is a simple process and, if you are successful, we will fund 100% of the cost (excluding VAT) provided that young people up to the age of 21 are actively involved in the planting.
Our Bewdley Town Council Tree Wardens, Gren and Cliff, are ready to assist you in any way they can, especially in finding the expertise which would enable you to plan and carry out your project.
Should you need any further information regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
At this time, it is unclear what social distancing rules will be in place when the tree planting season begins again. However, we are still keen to encourage groups to develop tree planting projects, managed by small groups in their communities. If Covid-19 restrictions allow, we hope safely-run tree planting activities will happen during National Tree Week – 28 November to 6 December 2020. If your funded project cannot go ahead at any time this winter due to social distancing restrictions, then the delivery deadline of your grant will be extended to the following year. So please don’t let Covid-19 stop you telling us about your fantastic tree planting projects. We would love you to apply.
Please apply and help create a greener, tree-filled future!
