Students for Trees is a student led network supporting students across the UK to learn about, and to take action for, woods and trees, to help fight the climate and nature crises. Each year, Students For Trees is led by a group of 10-15 students who form an annual Council and direct the activities and support for student groups over the year.
A core part of the Students For Trees is engaging student groups and educational staff with free Woodland Trust tree packs and helping groups to organise tree planting events. We want to see student groups planting trees on campuses, in their local woods and any other suitable land they can find and receive permission to plant on. Staff who work in education institutions are also welcome to apply!
If you would like to apply for free trees, the Woodland Trust is currently offering trees for March 2024:

This programme ran between 2021-2023 and was supported by SOS-UK and the Woodland Trust.
