Be part of the solution

The RFS is working hard to help to combat the threats and pressures that are faced by our trees and woodlands. You can be part of the solution by making a donation today. You can choose to support one of our appeals (listed below) or if you simply can't decide click here to make a general donation.


Teaching Trees appeal

Teaching Trees builds the next generation’s awareness and appreciation of the value of trees and woods.  Primary school children are taken on a guided woodland visit, and taught tree identification, habitat diversity, and what it means to ‘manage’ a wood. We are focusing on offering these outdoor learning experiences to children who will benefit the most from the opportunity.  Help us reach our 2019 target by making a donation today.
