The main aim of Students for Trees is to work with our fellow students to take meaningful action on campuses across the UK to increase tree cover and to mobilise students to protect our woods and trees from the threats they face, particularly in relation to the climate and nature crises.
There are a few different ways you can get involved, including as a Students for Trees Branch, as an individual, or by joining the council.
We encourage all of our members to get involved in tree planting activities. This may be on campus with your society, in a local park or greenspace, or by attending one of our events!
Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to order free tree packs from the Woodland Trust. We will also be delivering a range of webinars and providing resources to help you identify trees, learn how to plant, and also how to manage trees. View our upcoming events page for details.
You can get involved by setting up, or joining an existing Students for Trees Branch. A Branch is typically a university society or school group set up by students to take action for trees in their local area. By signing up to be a branch, you will receive a newsletter from Students for Trees and have access to a range of resources and events to help you stand up for trees! You will also be able to access support from the Students for Trees Council, SOS-UK and the Woodland Trust to help set up your own planting events and activities.
We want all students to be able to get involved! Even if you haven't yet found your group you can still attend our events, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram. We can also help connect you to community groups and let you know about events nearby.
Check back soon for opportunities to sign up as an individual to Students for Trees.
