One Tree Per Child

One Tree Per Child

Volunteer to help us plant trees or have your say on where we plant trees.

Volunteer events

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), all volunteer events are postponed for the foreseeable future.

One Tree Per Child plants trees in schools, parks and open spaces.

All the trees, tools and equipment we use is sponsored by our partners.

We’ve planted 57,000 trees since 2014 and we continue to plant over 6,000 trees per year. We’re creating plans to show you how we’re going to do this and we’ll share them with you here so that you can comment.

We beat our first target of 36,000 trees as part of the European Green Capital year in  2015. This represented one tree for each of Bristol’s primary school students. Find out how we did this on the Bristol 247 website.

Volunteer and training programme

Join us on Wednesdays and Thursdays to help us plant trees through autumn and winter and maintain them through spring and summer.

This will give you the chance to meet new people in beautiful green spaces whilst we look after the city’s green infrastructure.

The days run from 10am to 3pm with all tools and training provided free.

Arrange for us to visit your school

We can deliver school assemblies and storytelling sessions, covering a range of tree-based topics.

We can also send a tree expert to teach children about trees. If you don’t have spare land to plant trees, we’ll organise somewhere for the session to take place.

If you’d like us to visit your school, email
