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.  

The trees can be collected on the 4th of December between 10:00am and 1:00pm only.  Please bring a bag and/or a damp newspaper to wrap them in. We are unable to provide carrier bags. Kindly note that residents have reserved trees already and we are closed for further requests. If you haven’t already requested a tree and would like one please arrive towards 1:00pm for any that are left.

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.
