Northumberland County Council’s innovative free tree giveaway is back for a second year.
The popular Free Tree scheme is offering 15,000 tree saplings to residents, schools and community groups to help everyone in Northumberland get involved in making the county greener.
Eight different species of saplings are on offer, which are suitable for small, medium and large gardens, as well as those with limited garden space. Packs of up to 120 saplings will be available to schools, community groups, town and parish councils and charities.
The trees are small cell grown plants, sourced from the UK and provided along with a biodegradable shelter guard, cane and an electronic link to planting and aftercare instructions.
