Urban Tree Challenge Fund opens for second round.

The Forestry Commission has opened round two of the Urban Tree Challenge Fund, where community groups, town councils and individuals can apply for a share of the £10million pot to increase tree numbers in urban areas through small scale planting projects. 

The Urban Tree Challenge Fund (UTCF) has been developed in response to HM Treasury releasing £10 million in the 2018 Autumn Budget announcement for planting at least 20,000 large trees and 110,000 small trees in urban areas in England

Find out what’s involved and how to apply for funding to support the planting and establishment of small trees in urban and peri-urban areas in England.

The application window for Round 2 is open from 30 March 2020 to 31 May 2020.
