One Tree Per Child

One Tree Per Child

Volunteer to help us plant trees, have your say on our tree planting consultations, and read about our successes in Bristol.

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

We aim to have every one of the 36,000 children in Bristol's 130 primary schools planting at least one tree.

Volunteer to plant, and look after, trees with us

We'll be planting and looking after trees throughout Bristol from October to December 2021. 

Visit our volunteer to plant trees in Bristol page to see our tree planting events and sign up. 

We provide all training, tools and PPE so no experience necessary.

Mailing list

Sign up to our mailing list on Mailchimp to keep up to date with all future maintenance and planting events.

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 onetreeperchild@bristol.gov.uk.

Our successes and reports

We’ve planted 60,000 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.
