Terrific Trees

Bring the beauty of native woodland to your garden with help from the Woodland Trust

Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity and we’re passionate about woodland. If you love woods, why not bring some of the beauty of natural woodland to life in your own garden by planting a native tree or shrub – you’ll not only enhance the beauty of your own home, but will create a much needed home for wildlife too.

Every garden has the potential to become a haven for wildlife. Planting native trees and shrubs, and limited use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers is a positive step towards encouraging wildlife into your garden. When planning your planting there’s a wealth of stunning native species to choose from, with something to suit every shape, size or style of garden.
