Andover Trees United, the next 5 years 2017 - 2021

The Great Growing Project


Over the next five years, our main goals are:

  • Growing the project and putting our work on a sustainable footing

  • Growing the volunteer team and increasing the number of young people and adults who volunteer

  • Growing community involvement to develop stronger connections with individuals, local organisations and business for mutual benefit

  • Growing the wood and adding more trees, wildflowers and butterflies

  • Growing understanding of trees, the climate crisis, acting locally, thinking globally, taking responsibility and making a difference



  • Growing learning in and about nature, while supporting schools to develop a creative approach to learning in the natural environment.

 “We learn to love nature as children, and our commitment to nature later in life – respecting it, protecting it, restoring it, or simply enjoying it, is built on that childhood foundation.

The natural world is good for us all, children and adults – for our health and souls, it is a bedrock of society and the economy, and it matters for its own sake.”

Minister of State Rory Stewart in his introduction to ‘Natural Connections’, published July 2016
