Delivering tree planting and maintenance projects in schools and communities.

Connecting Young People & Nature

Improving the Environment

Local Projects Reducing Climate Change

School Projects

We work with schools to develop on-going tree planting projects with maintenance plans that engage students, including those with special educational needs, to become actively involved.

Community Projects

We work with local authorities helping to organise tree planting and maintenance events that anyone can participate in.

Improving the Environment and our Health

Our vision is of revitalised schools and communities with more green space, trees aplenty and happier young people.

Our Aims

1) To get young people in Sussex connecting with the environment through tree planting and maintenance projects in their own schools and colleges, giving them an opportunity to make a difference.

2) Support schools and colleges to get tree planting projects delivered by raising funds, assisting in planning and procurement.

3) Connect corporate supporters to tree planting projects in their area, so they can make a direct and positive contribution to their environment, young communities and sustainability.

4) Develop plans for students and volunteers to regularly care for and maintain young trees properly until they are well established, CO2 munching beauties.


The Tree Action volunteers have been a highly supportive partner for the Adur and Worthing Councils Parks & Foreshore and Ranges Team by connecting schools and the community to tree planting, maintenance and watering projects on public land. Their volunteers have been helping to educate students and the importance of the local environment and connecting them with nature. We would like to be able to continue working with them…

Adur & Worthing Council

We are extremely grateful to Tree Action for supporting the school with a grant to fund the planting of sixty trees in our school grounds as well as organising the project…The children understand the benefit trees can bring not only to people but to the environment and they have enjoyed being involved in planting and maintaining the trees that we have received so far as well as the trees they have planted in the local Buckingham Park.
