Where to buy a tree

We still have a limited number of tree saplings available to collect from three TCV sites in London. Alternatively, its easy to buy a tree to plant at home.

 

How to plant a tree

Planting a tree doesn’t require any specialist knowledge. There are plenty of step-by-step guides you can follow, including our community tree planting guide with The Conservation Volunteers.

 

Which tree to choose

It’s important to plant the right tree in the right place, so that it will thrive and grow to the size you want.

 

Grow your own tree from seed

Instead of buying a tree you can also grow your own tree from seed. Autumn is a great time to collect tree seeds to plant.

 

How to look after your tree

Looking after your tree, especially in the first few years of its life, is important to make sure it survives and thrives.
