Tree Champions

Volunteer at Treefest 2020 and get in for FREE!

We have a whopping 6,500 trees to plant at Treefest 2020, including 750 metres of native hedgerow and 1.5 hectares of new woodland! So we are aiming to devote Friday 31st January to planting the hedge. We are looking to recruit 50 Tree Champions, each prepared to plant 100 trees…that’s 5,000 trees….in one day!! 

On Saturday the Tree Champions will act as mentors to inexperienced tree planters and guide them in planting the woodland.

Thank you to the 30 people who have already signed up to be Tree Champions. We still have 20 free tickets left to exchange for your pledge to plant 100 trees.
