Saving Devon’s Treescapes project will be giving away free trees for people to plant in their gardens.

Devon’s treescapes are stunning and crucial habitats for so much wildlife, but they are under threat from ash dieback which is estimated to kill at least 90% of Devon’s ash trees in the coming years. It will affect everyone, but everyone can be part of the solution.

Do your bit by collecting a free tree to plant in your garden.

You will be able to collect between one and five free trees along with protection and a free planting and aftercare guide. The trees will all be cell grown UK broadleaf species such as crab apple, wild cherry, rowan and birch. They will be two to three years old and so around 20-60cm in height and will need to be planted within a few days of collection.

The hub will be there until trees run out so ensure you arrive early to not be disappointed!

Local volunteers and community groups run our free tree hubs in their own time, so please be patient and considerate. We apologise if all the trees have run out by the time you get there – we never know how popular a tree hub will be!

We are very grateful to the Longmead Environmental Action Group for hosting this hub.

If you are looking to plant more than five trees then please contact our treescapes team who will add you to a waiting list for next planting season (winter 2023/24). Our trees are generally allocated in September for the upcoming planting season. Please email Rosie on rcotgreave@devonwildlifetrust.org with as many details of your proposed planting as possible.

If possible, please bring some damp newspaper to wrap your tree in so that it doesn’t dry out before you’re able to plant it.
