Teaching Trees supporters
Teaching Trees would like to thank all of the individuals, charitable trusts and others who make our work of teaching children and young people about trees possible. We are also indebted to the many owners who have so generously opened up their woods to local schools.
We are grateful for the support of the Whitaker Charitable Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation, the Sir James Knott Trust and many other charitable trusts.
We would also like to thank the RFS Yorkshire Division for establishing Teaching Trees in 2001 and for continuing to support and advise our project.
