The Conservation Volunteers and OVO Energy are currently offering free trees to schools and community groups.
I Dig Trees saw 158,000 trees planted last year, and this year they want to enable schools, community groups, volunteers, landowners and councils to achieve even more.
They have a huge variety of species and the trees come in packs of 50 (with a maximum order of 950), meaning here is a huge scope to dramatically enhance school playing fields and benefit communal green spaces.
They are also offering a tree planting service alongside the scheme, using their practical team volunteers at Hollybush Farm. This costs £300 per day and they can usually plant around 300 per day – meaning each tree ordered, delivered and planted costs any organisation who wishes to benefit just £1.
