Broadland Community Tree Planting Grants

Broadland District Council have tree planting grants available for community groups, town and parish councils and charities to plant trees in Broadland.

This scheme is designed to encourage tree planting in the district. Trees have a positive effect on our environment, sequestering carbon, reducing air pollution and increasing biodiversity.

Projects can take place this tree planting season, November 2022 to March 2023, and with projects that plant a large proportion of saplings being preferred.

Funding can cover the cost of trees, planting, fencing and guards to protect trees, as well as aftercare to ensure the trees have the best chance of survival.

Applications will be reviewed on a first come first served basis, on the last Friday of each month.

Please download and complete the application form below. We have also provided a guidance document.

If you are keen to participate but need some help with this, please get in touch. We’re keen to hear from all interested groups and to work out how we can best support tree planting in Broadland.

For inspiration, take a look at two grant projects Sprowston Diamond Field hedgerow and Old Catton community nursery from the 2021 to 2022 planting season
