We have received the following offer from the Woodland Trust:
You can view the leaflet here.
I thought you might like to know that the Woodland Trust is offering community groups, youth groups and schools the chance to apply for packs of free trees for delivery in March 2013. Whether groups are interested in helping wildlife; creating a faith, or inter-faith, green space; a community garden or allotment; or just want to enhance their local area – any community groups are very welcome to apply for our free trees and I’d be very happy to speak to any representatives about the packs and how to apply.
We have 1250 to give away and the tree packs come in three sizes – 30 saplings, 105 saplings and 420 saplings in various themes (wildlife, wild harvest, year-round colour, future firewood and wetland) and you can find out more about them at www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/communitytrees . The packs are due to be delivered week commencing 5 March 2013 (the deadline for applications is Christmas 2012).
This year we’re trying to help bees by encouraging groups to plant species that are beneficial through their nectar or pollen and I’ve attached a leaflet that details the relevant packs. I’ve also attached our current community tree packs leaflet. Please feel free to forward them to any group who might be interested, add them to your website or include them in your newsletter. If you have any questions at all please do get in touch.
