Free tree schemes

To help to replace the huge number of ash trees that are now dying through ash dieback, the following free tree schemes were offered to landowners and communities within Devon in the planting season Winter 2019 / Spring 2020. Although the current offers have ended, please keep checking this website for details of future schemes covering the planting season starting November 2020.

Please also check out free tree schemes offered by the Woodland trust and keep up to date on the development of the Saving Devon’s Treescapes Project being run by Devon Wildlife Trust on behalf of the Forum.

Free tree packs for landowners

Free packs of 45 oak, birch and rowan trees were supplied to 40 successful landowners last year thanks to this scheme run by Devon County Council in association with the Woodland Trust.

Free landmark trees for parish and town councils

30 parish and town councils in Devon collected a free landmark tree last winter from Perrie Hale Nurseries, thanks to this scheme run and funded by Devon County Council. If you have registered your interest, but were unsuccessful last year, we will contact you again should we run a similar scheme for the forthcoming planting season.
