Through this autumn festival The Tree Council aims to inspire everyone, particularly school children and families, to gather seeds, fruits and nuts and grow the trees of the future.
The festival starts on the 23 September (the autumn equinox, considered to be the first day of autumn) and continues until the 23 October, giving everyone plenty of days on which to hold events.
Growing trees from local seed can have great benefits in restocking areas with trees of local provenance.
The concept of local provenance – trees that are adapted to the local circumstances and so are likely to flourish and help restore, conserve and beautify local urban and rural spaces.
Collecting seed and growing trees is also a great way to get children involved and start growing the next generation of tree enthusiasts.
