Thank you all for your warm messages of support for Moor Trees. Whilst we are all in the current lockdown situation we have cancelled all volunteering days until further notice. This follows the advice of the Government and also similar actions by the Woodland Trust and other organisations who coordinate volunteer days. Please do not come to the Tree nurseries on our usual Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Sundays, indeed any day!
We continue to have staff attend the tree nurseries to ensure our trees keep growing, and whilst many funding sources have disappeared we are working hard to keep the trees alive until we can plant them out this winter. Office work has not ceased and so we will continue to accept tree dedications, carbon mitigation donations, membership requests and answer all enquires including approving woodland planting sites for the coming winter. All this work is made possible by the generosity of you, our loyal members and supporters. Once this has blown over we’ll immediately start posting volunteering days. Meanwhile, please continue to follow us on Facebook and share our story.
We want to say a huge thank you for your continued support and interest in our work which, at times like these, is more important than ever.
A NEW VISION
Moor Trees is on a mission to restore our native woodland.
Please help us with our Coronavirus appeal today
Plant a tree AND support the NHS
Here at Moor Trees we have planted over 100,000 trees with the help of volunteers and generous donations and we are on a mission to keep going.
This last year, we have grown over 15,000 native broadleaf trees from seed in our nurseries. We plan to plant them this winter to create semi-natural woodlands around Dartmoor and help combat climate change.
We cannot do this without your help. The seedlings need to be planted this winter, as they will be ready to go out. We are raising funds to help pay for the staff and materials needed to do this.
We’d also like to make a promise to you. For every £5.00 raised we will gift £2.50 to the NHS Together Charities COVID 19 Urgent Appeal.
Our mission has always been to help combat climate change through nurturing nature. The NHS Charities Together helps people stay well for longer and get better faster. Every penny you donate will help pave the way to a better future for our planet and help support the NHS staff and volunteers that are caring for Covid-19 patients.
Please donate now to help plant a tree and support the NHS by clicking on the donate button to the right.
If you would like to make a regular donation please visit our Help Financially page.
Thank you from all the staff and volunteers at Moor Trees

HELP US on our mission
Fit4Change allows you to raise money just by being active and Give as you Live is a simple way to raise funds whilst you shop. Alternatively, you can donate money to Moor Trees via PayPal Giving.
Moor Trees relies on income from grants, membership, donations and fundraising. We are very fortunate to have had some amazing individuals and groups fundraise for us in the last 12 months.
Caring for the trees in our nurseries and planting them on site is physical work, a great way of getting fresh air and exercise. Often we are joined by whole families, keen to get involved in something together.
We grow trees from locally collected seed in our own nurseries, nurtured by lots of local volunteers, and then use them to recreate woodland that has become a rare sight in the countryside.
