The first, Community Tree Planting Packs, involves communities being provided with saplings and tree guards to maintain the trees throughout their growth process. The sapling packs and guidance information are being made available to community groups, schools, clubs and OVO Communities across the UK.
The second, the Tree Planting Programme, will be delivered through both Green Gyms and TCV's community volunteering activities across multiple sites up and down the country. Green Gyms offer volunteers free outdoor sessions where they have the chance to participate in practical outdoor activities while getting active. These activities will give volunteers the skills to successfully plant and grow the saplings.
TCV chief executive Julie Hopes said: "We are delighted to be working with OVO Energy on this brilliant new project.
"TCV works with volunteers everyday across the country to transform local outdoor spaces, and create healthy, happy communities for everyone. Our partnership with OVO Energy will enable us to engage with and impact even more communities."
