These tree packs are offered by Suffolk Tree Warden Network (STWN) in partnership with the Woodland Trust and Suffolk County Council. The packs of trees are fully subsidised by the Woodland Trust and are available for landowners to plant in Suffolk through STWN. This is a separate offer from the tree and hedgerow packs offered to Tree Wardens.
Your trees will be eligible for inclusion in the Queens Green Canopy initiative.

Tree pack details
Tree packs contain 50 cell grown ‘whips’, 20 – 60cm tall depending on supply and species. All whips are UK sourced and grown with regional provenance.
Each pack of 50 trees has 10 of each of 5 species selected from:
- Crab Apple
- Wild Cherry
- Downy Birch or Whitebeam
The maximum offer is two packs of 50 trees, total 100 trees per landowner.
The packs are offered on a first come, first served basis. More packs may be available later in the year.
Due to the enormous demand for trees this year some species are in short supply and Field Maple is not available for this offer. Contents of packs cannot be guaranteed and it may be necessary to supply substitutes trees in some packs.
The landowner packs will be available for collection from a central distribution point, probably Stonham Aspal in Mid Suffolk. Details of the collection address, dates and times will be confirmed later, likely to be during the first week of December.
Tree packs include 120cm guards and 150cm FSC certified stakes as these have proven to be best overall to protect the saplings from deer browsing damage. In fenced areas or some urban locations, 1.2m tall guards might not be necessary. Please indicate on the order form if you do not require guards and stakes.
Many landowners may already have tree guards/stakes they can reuse. Please indicate on the order form if you require fewer guards/stakes to save on plastics and Woodland Trust costs.
