About the event

Devon's treescapes are stunning and crucial habitats for so much wildlife. But they are under threat from Ash Dieback which is estimated to kill at least 90% of Devon’s ash trees in the coming years. It will affect everyone, but everyone can be part of the solution.

Do your bit by collecting a free tree to plant in your garden.

You will be able to collect between 1-5 free trees along with protection and a free planting and aftercare guide. The trees will all be cell grown UK broadleaf species such as crab apple, wild cherry, rowan and birch. They will be 2-3 years old and so around 20-60cm in height and will need to be planted within a few days of collection. This event is staffed by volunteers from the local Tree Group - SAFT (Starcross Action for Trees).

Saving Devon's Treescapes is led by Devon Wildlife Trust on behalf of the Devon Ash Dieback Resilience Forum. It's a partnership project supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as well as other funders. Read more about the project and find other ways to get involved here.
