27 Jun 2022 by Mazeline Hemmings
The Tree Council has announced that it will re-open its Branching Out Fund in July.
Through the Fund, schools, community groups, parish and town councils, and tree warden networks within the UK will be able to apply for grants of between £300 and £1,500 to get communities and young people up to the age of 21 involved in planting and caring for trees, hedges and orchards.
The funding will cover the cost of trees, hedges and fruit trees; reasonable costs of non-plastic protection and supports, as well as peat-free compost and/or soil improvers.
