Whatever your occasion, be a part of growing the National Forest into a place people and nature can thrive. So far, we’ve planted 8,965,000 trees in the National Forest, which means that we have only 35,000 trees until we reach 9 million. You can help reach that target by helping to plant trees in the National Forest.

Types of trees we are planting

we are planting oak treesOak
The wise old oak tree. A symbol of strength and survival, this sacred species provides rich habitats for wildlife, with many enjoying its falling acorns as a food source.

Lime
With its wonderful red buds, beautiful bark spine, and large heart-shaped green leaves, the lime is perfect for birds and insects. Particularly, it is a favourite of the endangered honey bee.

Hazel
The leaves of the magical hazel tree turn yellow in autumn, covering our landscape in colour before creating a beautiful yellow pathway when they fall. A species perfect for dormice and caterpillars.

Silver Birch
The birch trees light open canopy provides the perfect conditions for bluebells, violets, grass and moss to thrive on the Forest floor. You may also find a nesting bird or two inside its trunk.

Rowan
A rowan tree can live up to 200 years. Its flowers grow in dense clusters of cream and white, and after pollination, develop into striking red fruits – a rich source of food for wildlife

Wild Cherry
The leaves of a wild cherry tree change colour throughout the year, creating a beautiful year-round display. Beginning with a deep green before fading into orange and a deep crimson in autumn.
