Each summer the International Tree Foundation (ITF) issues a ‘call for proposals’ and invites people to send it their ideas. Projects can be small, such as planting a community woodland or orchard, or they can be larger scale, such as landscape restoration or rewilding. The Foundation is open to all kinds of project types and ideas.
