Planting A Greener
Why We Chose To Sponsor
The Woodland Trust
There are between 3.5 – 7 million trees forested every year, but lets not dismay. Less than 9 percent of the wood used to make paper is harvested from old growth forests and there are 1000’s of hectors of managed forests across the globe harvesting trees for our everyday needs. In fact, millions of trees are planted each year, as it takes from 10 - 20 years for trees to grow large enough for harvesting.
More alarmingly, there are millions of trees being destroyed and cut down every day across the planet to make room for new homes, airports, shopping centres, roads and railway construction.
So what does that mean for us and our surrounding wildlife? Our woodlands have some of the plushest habitats providing homes for thousands of species of animals and plants. Yet, by bulldozing our woodland and forests, these wonderful creatures cannot survive – when Richard Adams wrote the famous Children’s novel Watership Down in 1966, I wonder if he envisaged how much of the countryside would be destroyed within the next 50 years.
The time, effort and work that The Woodland Trust put into creating new woodlands that we can all enjoy is truly amazing. Over the next 25 years they are looking to plant and nurture millions of trees to improve the environment we live in. We’d like to be a part of that plan…
Help Us Donate A 1000 Trees
Sponsoring the cost of a young native tree at a Woodland Trust wood we will secure the planting and lifetime care and protection of the tree - It costs £18 (inc vat) to purchase one tree and give it the care and nurturing it needs.
A little amount goes a long way - years in fact, as these trees will hopefully outgrow us and be there for our future generations to enjoy.
There is No Minimum Or Maximum Donation Amount - We Just Thank you for Helping Us Donate To A Greener Future.
