Natural Environment

Tree planting

Planting a tree is just one way you can help the environment.

Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust is a charity working to increase the number of trees in the UK. They can provide you with advice if you're planning to plant a tree. They also offer free trees for schools and communities.

Tree Council

The Tree Council brings everyone together with a shared mission to care for trees and our planet's future. They organise National Tree Week to mark the start of winter tree planting season. They also support schools to plant orchards.

Supporting the White Rose Forest

Every tree planted in Selby District helps to grow the White Rose Forest, the community forest for North and West Yorkshire. We are a White Rose Forest partner and are working on our own local tree planting plans across the District. 

Everyone can help to expand the White Rose Forest in Selby District by making a donation via the White Rose Forest website or by volunteering to plant trees through one of our local projects.

At least one tree will be planted in Selby District for every £10 donation. To make a donation please visit the White Rose Forest website.
