RFS Teaching Trees works with primary schools and landowners, offering educational visits to local woodlands.

Our curriculum linked sessions give children the opportunity to learn about trees, wildlife and forestry in a fun and hands-on way.  Through their experiences they gain an appreciation of woodlands' value for the environment, timber production and enjoyment. 


100% of schools rated Teaching Trees sessions as 'excellent' or 'good'
