Grants and Bursaries

Fund4Trees offers research grants and bursaries to all those working in the arboricultural and forestry sectors. As a young charity our limited financial resources mean that we are able to award only a small number of grants or bursaries each year. We expect therefore that applications for funding will be highly competitive.
