Free Community Tree Scheme
A new subsidised tree scheme for the 2022/23 planting season has just opened.
Shropshire residents, landowners, farmers, community groups, businesses and charities can apply for trees that are subsidised at a 50% cost by HM Treasury and Shropshire Council. The applicant is responsible for paying the remaining 50%.
We have chosen mixes of native trees suited for different planting sites in Shropshire, including:
- A lowland woodland mix
- An upland woodland mix
- A wet ground woodland mix
- A native hedgerow mix
These mixes are available in bundles of 20 trees and will cost £15 per bundle (half-price), including a bamboo cane and spiral tree guard.
There is no limit to the number of trees or hedgerow plants that you can orders, and trees will be supplied on very much a first come first served basis.
