Quotes from people using tree guides in 2022 in seven UK towns:
- “The guides were excellent and well presented. They gave me knowledge I previously did not have and will be of benefit to me in the future.”
- “User friendly; easy to understand; enough but not too much information; convenient to carry to the trees.”
- “The guides are an absolute brilliant learning tool which I used with my two children on our walks.”
- “The guides are used regularly within our school community. Some families have taken them home to use at weekends.”
- “We used the guides a lot with volunteers who were doing conservation management.”
Each tree guide is co-made with people in Glasgow and Bradford and tailored to each city.
You’ll be part of a community of like-minded people starting to study trees and help others through their family and groups.
Each guide is a colourful and splash-proof chart which feels great to hold and folds flat to fit into a large pocket or bag. Each guide is filled with drawings or photos created by enthusiasts and experts.
As well as guides in the post, your household or group will receive ideas by email for finding trees and volunteer and career opportunities to help trees and protect the natural environment.
We allocate tree guides based on target audience and availability as per our grant funding. T&Cs apply. We collect information to help our charity and funders know who we’re reaching.

Who are you again?
The tree guides are from the UK’s leading publisher of wildlife ID guides and education charity, the Field Studies Council.
We have guides to share thanks to the wonderful support of the Trees for Climate Action Project led by Trees for Cities that aims to engage 20,000 young people with trees in Glasgow and Bradford. This project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
We believe that every tree makes a difference. All the trees in our streets, gardens and towns play an important role in our ecosystem.
