National Tree Week
Grow a Tree in 23!
This year’s National Tree Week is extra special as it marks the 50th anniversary of the famous ‘Plant a Tree in 73’ campaign – from which National Tree Week (and The Tree Council) was born!
To pay homage to those foundations we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to Grow a Tree in 23 – either by participating in an organised tree planting event, or by hosting your own National Tree Week Tree Party!
Have a Tree Party!
The Tree Council has created lots of resources so why not call in family, friends, and neighbours, or work with your local community group, scout association, school, care home, or anyone else you can think of, to host a Tree Party in your nearby park, your garden, or any other community space. And if you can’t Grow a Tree in 23, why not just find a favourite, give it hug and say thanks for all its life-giving benefits.
National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration. Each year, the country’s conservation sector, volunteer groups and tree-lovers come together to plant thousands of trees to mark the start of the tree planting season.
