The Tree Council is the UK’s lead charity for trees, campaigning in partnership with member organisations and supporters, working together for the love of trees to inspire communities, unite bodies and influence decision makers.

We work in partnership with communities, organisations and government to make trees matter to everyone.

Our vision is one of more trees in streets, parks, hedgerows and woodland across the UK, bringing benefits to people and wildlife, enhancing landscapes and engaging people in biodiversity and environmental issues.



The charity has a small core staff but more than 150 member organisations drawn from a broad range of specialisms:  tree and woodland; habitat; landscape; professional; and statutory, that together, defines the shared agenda for change. It facilitates engagement through the annual community action programme, including National Tree Week, and has a planting grants programme for UK schools and communities to represent the common ground in support of a change agenda.
