Volunteer with Trees for Life and help us plant a forest for the future.

Trees for Life – Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts and actions

Please note, some volunteering activities have been affected. View our Coronavirus policy, impacts and actions here.

Unfortunately we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Conservations Weeks for all of 2020 and for spring 2021.

Trees for life is an award-winning Scottish charity. Our mission is to rewild the Scottish Highlands by enabling the restoration of the globally unique Caledonian Forest which once covered much of Scotland. Integral to our success is the involvement of people.


Volunteering offers a rewarding and hugely enjoyable opportunity to restore native forests and wildlife habitats. With the help of volunteers, we have planted nearly two million trees. We need volunteers to get behind our mission and help bring back the forest.


Conservation Weeks are an opportunity for volunteers from across the world, of all ages and backgrounds, to help restore Scotland’s natural environment.
