Defra is also supporting the Woodland Trust to offer 45,000 native British trees, free to 7000 state funded primary schools in England. The new scheme offers eligible schools extra help with planting to encourage them to make their school grounds and local communities greener.

As well as free tree packs, there’s help with finding somewhere else to plant if there isn’t room in school grounds; and there’s on-line curriculum linked resources to support teachers’ lesson plans. The closing date is January 8th 2016 and schools can apply via the Woodland Trust website. More details can be found here:-http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/in-your-community/apply-for-a-school-tree-pack/
