SDDC - Free Tree Scheme

South Derbyshire District Council

Free Tree scheme launches

This year South Derbyshire District Council's Free Tree scheme celebrates its 20th year with another great selection of young trees to give away with applications beginning on 12 October.

This year our experts have selected four different varieties of trees to give away - Alder buckthorn, Hazel, Rowan and Spindle. A total of 15 different species have been given away over the past 20 years. All the trees are two years old and approximately 30-60cms (up to two feet) high.

The Free Tree scheme is run in partnership with the National Forest Company, and, as in previous years, you can apply for two trees per household, or 10 if you are applying on behalf of a school or community group. You can apply between 9am Mon 12th October and 5pm Mon 9th November. Your household or community group must be based within the District of South Derbyshire.

Our special online application process includes the application form, how to plant, how to look after your trees and details of the Giveaway events. See www.southderbyshire.gov.uk/freetreescheme for more information. Anyone who does not have access to the internet can apply by ringing the Council's Customer Services during office hours on 01283 595795

Those requesting trees have a choice of Thursday 3rd December or Saturday 5th December to collect them.
