Teaching Trees is the Royal Forestry Society’s (RFS) schools programme for northern England and the Midlands. Our curriculum linked programme has been connecting children with local woodlands for nearly 15 years, using fun and engaging activities to teach them to value trees for wildlife, for enjoyment and for timber.
Our sessions help to embed classroom learning whilst giving children an appreciation of the vital importance of woodland management in supporting a sustainable environment.

Teaching Trees currently works across Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, County Durham and Northumberland. In 2016. we will continue to expand into new areas including Cumbria, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.
The RFS supports the Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto, and its aim that every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances.
