Trees for Climate

We have been creating woodland and growing the Forest of Marston Vale for nearly 30 years, and now -through Trees for Climate - we can offer our years of expertise and professional advice along with grants that can cover the costs of creating a new woodland.

Trees for climate is a five year, multi-million pound woodland creation programme that offers landowners and community groups the opportunity to transform their land into a new woodland, aided with financial support and long-term, bespoke advice from our Expert Forest Creation.

Whether you are a parish council looking to add some shade to a green space or a farmer looking to diversify income streams, we can help. Planting trees has never been easier.

Trees for Climate, where planting pays.

Launched in November 2020, Trees for Climate is part of the national Government-led Nature for Climate fund and is being delivered by England's Community Forests.

We've worked with some fantastic landowners, farmers and community organisations to deliver Trees for Climate schemes locally - here are quick case studies on just a few so far:

SHEERHATCH PRIMARY SCHOOL: COPLE, BEDFORD - Reclaiming unutilised space for outdoor learning

OCTAGON WOODS EXTENSION: WILLINGTON, BEDFORD - Preserving history; Improving the future

In the past year we have supplied schools with planting days, helped green up community spaces and grant-aided large woodland creation on farms and private land. Find out how we could help make your project a reality through Trees for Climate funding:
