20,000 free trees for London's schools

20,000 free trees for London's Schools

The Mayor of London & The London Assembly working with delivery partner Woodland Trust have up to 20,000 free trees available for London schools. These packs of trees come in a variety of sizes and themes to suit different spaces. Schools can choose from packs of 30, 105 or 420 trees.

Applications have reopened until 7th September 2016, and trees will be distributed for planting in November 2016

Why apply?

Planting trees is a great way to connect children with nature. Trees and woods can be used to teach many subjects in the school curriculum and also provide an exciting playground feature. The trees can be planted as a hedge to screen perimeter fencing and create outdoor learning areas. Shaded school grounds can also make break times safer on a hot day. Trees can also benefit wildlife and help tackle air pollution and flooding.

There are links resources for teachers and pupils to help make the most of your free trees in our application guidance information
