T:BUC Trees

What is T:BUC Trees?

T:BUC Trees is a social action opportunity delivered in partnership by The Executive Office, Woodland Trust NI and the Education Authority.

The initiative is designed to provide a range of opportunities for your organisation to engage young people in planting trees with a wider focus on caring for the environment whilst completing your T:BUC Camps programme.

We know caring for, protecting, and improving the natural environment around us are important issues for many young people and, young people are always looking for ways to contribute to these aims.

In partnering with the Woodland Trust, your T:BUC Camps programme can register to attend a tree planting date using the expression of interest form in the appropriate section below. This activity could be used as part of a wider workshop or focus on environmental issues.
