Schools and children’s charities across Hampshire are invited to apply for a tree to plant in their grounds or playgrounds. 

The first tree was planted in May by Lord Montagu of Beaulieu in the grounds of Beaulieu Primary School with the help of school children 

Schools can choose between a Common oak (Quercus robur), Silver Birch (Betula pendula) or a Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) all of which are native to the UK, which will be supplied as bare root plants in November and must be collected from Fairweather’s Garden Centre in November. 

‘We want to ensure that Hampshire’s schools grounds are green and welcoming spaces for the children of the future. Trees can provide shade for outside learning as well as vital habitats for wildlife. We hope that the memory of planting a tree will remain with school children and encourage them to continue to garden and invest in our landscape in the future’ says Patrick Fairweather MD at Fairweather’s Garden Centre 

Thank you for all your tree requests - we will be in contact with you soon.
