  • Provide ‘households’ with one copy of each guide and people representing groups (such as schools and community groups) with multiple copies of each guide to use with their group members. 
  • Bases allocation of tree guides on the availability of stock. There are enough guides to engage about 5,000 people through households and groups in 2024.
