We’ll bring focus to the importance of trees, share the wonderful gardens in our portfolio that hold national collections or are home to historic or special trees, look at their role in carbon capture and climate resilience, bring you special offers on Woodland Trust tree collections and more…

A new partnership to help champion the country’s trees

The National Garden Scheme has announced a new partnership with the Woodland Trust aimed at promoting a wider understanding and appreciation of trees within both a wild and domestic garden setting.

Commenting on the partnership, Darren Moorcroft, CEO of the Woodland Trust said: “Trees are a powerful weapon in the current fight back against both the climate and nature emergencies, and we hope that this partnership will help encourage the wider community of garden owners and visitors to appreciate their importance and to plant more trees. We want to see a country rich in native woods and trees, for people and for wildlife.”
