Tree Council – Branching Out Fund

Grants are available to assist schools and community groups in undertaking well-planned tree planting projects across the UK, preferably during National Tree Week. Grants of between £300 and £1,500 (excluding VAT) are available. Applications are considered on a rolling basis and organisations will receive a decision within four weeks.

If the cost of the planned project is likely to exceed the £1,500 limit, the Tree Council suggests that a funding application is made for a stand-alone section of the project.

Planting is to take place between November 2020 and March 2021 but preferably during National Tree Week (from 28 November to 6 December) or as near as possible afterwards, depending on when trees are available from supplier (seasonal variations affect this date).

The application form, guidance material and supporting resources can be accessed on the Tree Council’s website (

Applications should be submitted by email.
