Seeds2Trees was launched by Living Woods in 2022 to enable people of all ages, across local communities, to grow UK native trees from seed, for future use in our community focussed tree planting schemes.

STOP PRESS: 2024 video coming soon!

We will:

  • help to grow more trees; creating woodlands, and improving our natural environment.
  • enable the broader community to become part of the solution.
  • give agency to people as we work together to tackle the climate and biodiversity crisis.

In 2022 we launched Seeds2Trees with its first two-year round of tree growing. Over 100 community tree growers joined Seeds2Trees and embarked on their two year journey of planting British Native tree seed, and nurturing their young saplings. Our first round will end this November when we collect the saplings that they have tenderly cared for, and prepare them for planting.

A further 200 batches of seed and growing kits were distributed in November 2023 for our second round of tree growing and now we are preparing for our third round, when even more tree seed will be in community folks care to grow.

Our community of tree growers are made up of people, of all ages, backgrounds and growing experiences, within individual households, community group settings and educational establishments. Together we are “growing the change we need”.

Planting good seeds - sowing life. So happy to support this vital work.
A round 2 donor


Each year, we will supply seeds and growing kits to our growers, in the November. These kits all come with instructions sheets, and growers are supported every step of the way, with monthly newsletters and bespoke help.

Our tree growers sow the seeds, nurture, transplant them, and nurture some more, over a two-year period of time. After this your saplings will be collected, and become part of our woodland creation programmes at Living Woods.


With an even greater educational benefits– Round 3 will begin with the distribution of more seed and growing kits in November 2024

Can you help this community environmental focused project, with educational benefits, to literally grow?
Your donation can help us grow the change we need to create new woodlands.

Each tree grown as a part of Seeds2Trees when planted, has the potential of absorbing a tonne of CO2, helping to create new woodlands that will help improve bio-diversity and our environment. Your donation will be making an investment for our future generations

There are also opportunities for corporate sponsorship – could your business help to grow this project. Please contact Lara for more information.

Growing trees helps me feel I am making a difference to climate change and the environment. Just knowing my oak saplings will be here for a long time, makes me smile!
