What is The Big Climate Fightback?

The Big Climate Fightback is a campaign to get one million people to join the fight against climate change by pledging to plant a tree by Saturday 30 November 2019.

Why 30 November?

November represents the start of the traditional tree planting season. The day falls in National Tree Week, a week of tree planting organised by the Tree Council and is also Tree Charter Day – a national day of celebration of trees and woods.

What will be happening?

The Woodland Trust will be hosting public tree planting days across the UK on 30 November. There will be at least one event in each of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and at least five events across England. The flagship event will be held in Derbyshire at our new Young People’s Forest at Mead, near Heanor. We will also be sending out over 700,000 free trees to schools and communities for planting in late November.
