Planting a tree at home

You can pick up a free tree to plant at home from selected locations during National Tree Week (23 November - 1 December).

Our ballot to get two free trees to plant at home, in partnership with the Woodland Trust and supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery, has now closed. If you entered the ballot you will soon receive an email from the Woodland Trust letting you know if you were successful or not.

How to plant a tree
