National Tree Week 2013

The UK’s largest tree celebration is back for another year to officially launch the start of the winter tree planting season.

National Tree Week, organised by The Tree Council, is a chance for communities to get involved in tree-related events and plant new trees.

Voluntary bodies, local authorities and thousands of Tree Wardens around the country will be organising events that you can get involved in.Forest in Scotland

If National Tree Week inspires you to get more involved in protecting the UK’s trees, you can also sign up to take part in the OPAL tree health survey in 2014.

You data could help scientists learn more about the health of our trees, and about the pests and diseases that can affect them.
