The Woodland Trust is to give away a further half a million trees this autumn, for which schools and community groups can apply now.

The UK-grown trees come in packs rated small (30 trees), medium (105 trees), or large (420 trees). The medium and large tree packs come in six themes – trees ideal for year-round colour, wild harvest, wildlife, wetland, working wood and wild wood.

The Trust's tree packs project manager Beverley Gormley said: "Planting trees is a simple yet effective way to improve our environment. It's also the perfect way to get communities doing something meaningful together for their local area which will bring benefits for years to come."

The tree packs have been funded by the trust's lead partners IKEA Family, Biffa Award and Sainsbury's, and also by WHSmith, Wilkinson and players of People's Postcode Lottery.

They are available from www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/freetrees. The deadline for applications is 4 September.
