Community Tree Packs
In 2011 RE:LEAF funded the Woodland Trust to provide packs of trees to over 50 community groups across London. Over 11,000 trees were planted in various locations across the city - from parks and community gardens to allotments, housing associations, schools and youth centres.

Take part in Tree Surveys
- The Natural History Museum is running a nationwide urban tree survey.
- The Conservation Foundation's London Elm project aims to survey the capital's elm trees, look at their role in London's history and plant at least 1,000 saplings. Get involved now at Conservation Foundation.
- Partner with us:
Could you help us to deliver one or all of our aims? Email email@example.com to find out more about the projects and how we envisage achieving the increase in tree cover.
- Deliver a programme:
Do you have the expertise to deliver a project; perhaps you are doing one of the projects already. Let’s work together.
- Sponsor a programme:
We want everyone to benefit from RE:LEAF and for all to get involved. If you are interested in sponsoring a project or even trees for your local community email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Staff volunteers:
The Mayor wants green volunteering to be embraced by more commercial businesses as well as London residents and we will be looking at how to make it easier to volunteer. Why not get your staff involved in community tree maintenance and planting events?
