Currently we have not been able to supply this Green Tree Badge Activities Passbook in Braille form, but welcome any support in converting our work to meet the requirements of blind, visually impaired or partially sighted students.Please do contact us here [email protected] if you would like to support us on this.
Should your child have mobility or ability constraints, they can hopefully still participate in the activities to obtain their Green Tree Badge. If for any reason the children cannot do 2 tasks per theme (4 themes) but have completed some, please do email us at [email protected] for special consideration. Our aim is for all children to love trees more, and to feel special in getting their Green Tree Badge!

Who can participate

The activities have been carefully created so that most children can take part in all of the activities, across the UK.
The most likely age group of children to participate is between 7 – 12 years old. Younger children (4+ years old) should be able to participate in some of the activities too. We also encourage older students, and youth leaders to support the projects – as many are for any age of person!

Where to participate?

Please note many of the activities need to be conducted outside – in school gardens, local parks, or nature areas.

Share your progress

We encourage parents, guardians, and adult group leaders of children to share your child’s journey by tagging our official Green Tree Badge social media channels. We’d love to see the progress and creativity your children share with our magical world of trees. This is not a prerequisite or requirement for completing the badge.
By tagging your child or children you are consenting for that image to be used for promotional activities of Green Tree Badge,
and are responsible for the consent of the picture of that child/ those children. You must adhere to age limitation of social media operators, and not encourage any underage usage of social media by your children. We at Green Tree Badge are not responsible for any breaches of creation or use of content created or tagged on via social media. For further information please see HERE.

Becky Wilkinson

Learning and Outreach Manager,
The Royal Forestry Society

Becky is driven by making a difference in the lives of children and young people and is never happier than when out in a forest.

Becky says: “As soon as my children could talk, they loved dinosaurs. They were fascinated when I told them that the monkey puzzle tree that we see today is related to a tree that existed before the time of the dinosaurs. Years on, they still love to call out every time they see a monkey puzzle tree when we are out as a family.

Christopher says: “They can be such an impressive tree in a forest setting or on their own, and they are some tall Scots pine trees near where I live, and I always look out at them after a long journey home.

Tony Kirkham MBE,
VMH, FICFor (Hon)

Former Head of the Arboretum,
Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.

Tony has worked with trees all his life and was inspired by the horse chestnut tree, the source of conkers for the well-known game. His teacher bought a bunch of twigs to school, and told him why it is called horse chestnut, which is due to the horseshoe-shaped leaf scars on the twigs. Tony says, “It is one of the easiest trees to identify, but unfortunately is now under threat.” This experience led Tony to what he considers to be the best job in the world.

Curating the incredible tree collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, where he worked for 43 years before retiring in 2021.
