Plant a tree

Child and man planting tree

Trees provide so many benefits. They help clean the air we breathe, absorb harmful pollutants and reduce the risk of flooding by slowing down the absorption of water into the soil, as well as acting as a carbon sink, helping reduce the damaging effects of climate change.

Not only that, a single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insects, fungi, moss, mammals and plants.

The Royal Horticulture Society recommends that the best time to plant is during the winter months (October to April), avoiding waterlogged or frozen soil.

To reach its 2050 net-zero carbon target, the UK needs millions trees to be planted. Could you help and plant a tree of your own?
