Grab yourself a free tree

Published: August, 2022

Northumberland County Council’s free tree giveaway is back for another year.

The Council is offering 10,000 tree saplings to residents, schools, community groups, town and parish councils as well as charities and businesses to help make Northumberland a greener and cleaner place to be.

Eight different sapling species are on offer, which are suitable for small, medium, and large green spaces – even those with limited space can apply.

Saplings for individuals and packs of up to 120 saplings for groups are now available to order online at There will be several collection points and confirmation of your collection point will be sent out to you three weeks prior to the collection date.

The trees are small cell grown plants, sourced from the UK, and come provided with a biodegradable shelter guard, cane and planting and aftercare instructions.

As well as being good for the environment, planting trees is an opportunity for communities to come together, learn new skills and get outdoors. All ages and abilities can get involved.

The trees will be provided with a biodegradable tree shelter guard and cane along with planting and care instructions.

Accessible collection points will be available across the county during November, December and January and details will be announced in the week commencing 4th October 2022.
