Shropshire Council Community Tree Scheme
13th October 2021

Shropshire Council is reopening the Community Tree Scheme once again, for planting during the coming season (Autumn / Winter 2021-2022)!

Do you know of groups or individuals who might be interested in entering the scheme? We will only be able to provide trees in multiples of prearranged bundles of 20, rather than offering applicants total freedom of tree species choices and numbers. Successful applicants must be able to collect their trees directly from either of the two places helping us this year – Prees Heath Forest Nursery in the north of the county or John Holliday (formerly Potters Farm Tree Nursery) at Lower Hayton in the south.

Full details of this year’s scheme, how it works and our online application form, can be found at the following webpage: http://www.shropshire.gov.uk/environment/trees-woodlands-and-hedges/shropshire-council-community-tree-scheme-202122/.

Further details with regards to collection will be sent to successful applicants. Applications are processed on a first come first served basis and we will close the scheme when all the available trees are allocated.

So if you know anyone who is interested in planting small areas of woodland or short lengths of hedgerow to enhance the landscape and benefit the wildlife of Shropshire, and would like to receive some free trees to help with that, we look forward to receiving their completed application forms soon!
