FREE TREES AND HEDGEROWS – Funding opportunities available

Hampshire Forest Partnership are launching another round of tree planting funding schemes. Join other local community groups, charities, councils, farmers, and landowners to plant trees and hedgerows in your area.

Established by Hampshire County Council in 2022, Hampshire Forest Partnership funds tree planting projects across Hampshire, working with local organisations, businesses, and individuals to plant the right tree in the right place. As well as bringing important environmental benefits such as helping to reduce flood risk, mitigate air pollution and boosting biodiversity, tree planting can also support a wealth of social benefits and bring communities together.

Last winter 34,000 tree and hedgerow plants were distributed across 120 different sites, ranging from schools to farms, hospices to country parks, and more. With the help of hundreds of local volunteers, these trees contribute to Hampshire County Council’s target of planting one million trees across the county by 2050. Hampshire Forest Partnership has a range of funding offers available to suit different sites and groups, including hedgerows, disease resistant elm trees, community orchards, agroforestry, mini ‘Miyawaki’ forests, and more.

Enquiries are open now for planting this winter. Register your interest today if you want to apply for trees or hedgerow funding:
