Branch Managers – we need you!

We are launching our Woods for the Shires campaign soon – the aim is to establish a new woodland in every one of the historic English counties, which are listed below.

To make this happen, we need to find a Branch Manager for every county. These people will help us identify plots of land for creating new woodlands, plan the wood and co-ordinate groups of volunteers to plant and manage the growing woodland.

To help you with these efforts, Woods for the Trees will give you the following:

  • The Little Book of Planting Trees by Max Adams
  • A Woods for the Trees t-shirt and other goodies
  • Native tree seeds to get your plantation kick-started
  • Free start-up and planning advice
  • Free training in tree planting and woodland management – online or in person 
  • Your own page on our website, so that volunteers can find you and you can share your progress.

Our first Branch Manager is Stephen Benaim of Middlesex – please see his page and decide whether you’d like to be Branch Manager for your county!
