The Woodland Trust
We all need trees – that’s why we’ve been planting them for over 45 years. We’re the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity. Help us plant trees, protect woods and inspire people to enjoy the world on their doorstep.
TAKE HOME A FREE TREE
Our mission is to plant a tree for every person in the UK by 2025 so how about giving us a hand? We’re giving away silver birch, hazel, rowan, and crab apple saplings along with instructions to take care of your tree during the summer heat. All we ask is that you (or your accompanying adult) give us some details so we can tell you more about our work and what we’re up to.
INTERACTIVE ANCIENT TREE
Did you know an oak tree can support over 2,000 species? Come and explore our ancient oak tree and see what you can find hidden inside. Please make sure children are supervised by adults - our ancient tree is old, delicate, and covered in knobbly bits.
WILLOW WEAVING SESSIONS
Learn how to work with foraged twigs of willows at set times throughout each day of Countryfile Live. Make something beautiful to take home with you, and learn the skills to make more. Session times will be confirmed on each day of Countryfile Live, please visit our stand to find out more.
KIDS' CRAFT ACTIVITIES
With help from one of the Woodland Trust team, make a bug hotel to give minibeasts a place to stay or a new woodland creature friend to take home for free (donations appreciated!). Big kids are welcome to join in too.
WILDLIFE PAIRS GAME
How well do you know the animals in UK woodland? See if you can mix and match animals on our wildlife pairs game and prove that you’re an expert!
Show your support for woodland and wildlife by taking a photo with our Nature Detectives animal wall and sharing it on social media.
Would you get your hands dirty for a good cause? Come and speak to our team to play in the dirt in our planter, and learn how to best plant and care for a tree. We have stickers for the first 1,000 people to plant a tree with us so you can tell everyone about it.
How do you measure up against an oak or rowan tree? Find out how tall you are in tree years – how fast do you think a tree grows compared to a person?
MEMBERS' ONLY AREA
We love our members. So much, that we’d love you to come and take a break in our exclusive Members’ Only area. Put up your feet, chat a while and have a cuppa on us.
We are the Woodland Trust - the UK's largest woodland conservation charity. We protect and campaign on behalf of this country’s woods, plant trees, and restore ancient woodland for the benefit of wildlife and people. Our vision is a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife.
