About the campaign
The Big Tree Plant launched in December 2010. It’s a campaign to increase the number of trees planted in towns, cities and neighbourhoods throughout England.
The Big Tree Plant is a national partnership bringing together the wide range of organisations who already plant trees, as well as civic and community groups working with Defra and the Forestry Commission. A list of the national campaign partners are at the bottom of this page.
Based on the reports from partners, community groups and the public, we regularly update information about the number of trees planted (on the right hand side of the page).
The campaign is aiming to support the Big Society by getting more people involved in planting and caring for trees and establishing local community tree projects throughout England.
