I've come across this offer from the Woodland Trust which may be of interest to community groups (but you need to be quick - closing date for applications is 13th September):

Every autumn our tree packs are available for community groups to receive. These packs are free but you must hold a public planting event as we want to see as much community engagement as possible. You must have landowner’s permission to plant trees and plans in place for maintenance. They come in three sizes: small (30 trees), medium (105 trees, suitable as hedge or copse) and large (420 trees, ideal for approx one acre).

The small packs come with a choice of two themes:

  • Hedge – hawthorn, hazel, holly, dogwood, dog rose
  • Copse – silver birch, cherry, rowan

The medium and large come with a choice of five themes for you to choose from:

  • Year-Round Colour (flowers, berries, stems and leaves) – hawthorn, hazel, birch, rowan, cherry, dogwood
  • Future Firewood (keep the log fires burning) – birch, cherry, oak, rowan
  • Wild Harvest (tasty treats to eat) – hazel, blackthorn, crab apple, elder, dog rose
  • Wildlife (provide new homes for native wildlife) – blackthorn, hawthorn, hazel, birch, rowan, oak
  • Wetland (designed for wet areas, to reduce flooding) – downy birch, goat willow, osier, rowan, hawthorn and hazel
