Trees are essential for people, wildlife and the environment. They are a natural ally in tackling the climate crisis. They lock up carbon, reduce pollution and flooding. They support people, wildlife and farming in adapting to the climate crisis.

Woods and trees are also good for our health and well-being, improving the places we live, work and play. The Climate Action Fife Community Tree Fund supports people across Fife to plant and look after trees to realise these benefits.

Where your donation will be used

Donations to the Tree Fund support activities that fit under the principles of the Charter for Trees, Woods and People and which are not covered by other grants, including:

  • Fruit trees to support the Fruit Tree for Every Garden in Fife Campaign.

  • Replacing diseased trees such as ash.
  • Hedgerow tree planting which can’t be funded through other grant schemes.
