The aim is to make sure everybody in the UK has the chance to plant a tree. So they’re giving away thousands of trees to schools and communities. The trees all come in set pack which can’t be varied/personalised. The ‘wild harvest’ pack consists of hazel, blackthorn, crab apple, elder, dog rose, rowan, so it’s not the eating apples, etc that people might be looking for.
For schools, trees should be planted on either the school grounds, land the school has arranged regular access to or in an area that is publicly accessible.
For community groups, the land needs to be accessible to the public. You should also make sure your local community are aware of your plans to plant and are happy for you to go ahead.
You must have permission from the legal landowner – this and the type of trees probably rules out allotments.
