Tree planting schemes


Buckinghamshire Council is on a mission to create a greener, cleaner future for everyone in Buckinghamshire.

As part of the Bucks Tree Mission, we have committed to creating brand new woodlands by planting over 500,000 trees in the next 10 years and supporting other tree planting projects too.

About the Bucks Tree Mission

We are encouraging residents and community groups to support tree planting as part of the Bucks Tree Mission - a shared mission to plant trees for a greener future.

Trees can:

  • enhance our environment
  • help biodiversity by providing food and water and giving birds, bats, mammals, insects, fungi and butterflies homes, playgrounds, and hiding spots from predators
  • create more space for nature to grow and thrive
  • improve public health and wellbeing

The Bucks Tree Mission is an important part of our Climate Change and Air Quality Strategy. The strategy will reduce our carbon emissions by 75% by 2030 on the way to achieving net-zero no later than 2050.
