What we do

Planting a tree is always a good thing to do, but the government and ecologists agree that we need to plant 1.5 billion trees nationwide to make a difference to our environment. This equates to about 23 trees per person in the UK.

There is a problem here –  most of us don’t have the room to plant 1 tree, let alone 23.

If this is you, there is still plenty you can do.

Join our sponsor a tree scheme and you can plant as many trees as you like!

If you’re a landowner, lucky enough to have room for a tree – or 23 – we’re here to advise and help with planting. Call us to talk over your ideas.

We guarantee to plant all trees in Shropshire. They will be homegrown from UK seed stock of native broadleaf species. Planting schemes will include clearings and habitats for wildlife rather than just block planting.

We are a not for profit organisation.

Help us plant trees and hedges in Shropshire 

Did you know that Shropshire has only 9% tree cover compared with 13% country wide and 26% in Europe?

Our aim is to change this figure for the better and we need your help.

Every tree you sponsor will be part of a growing woodland ecosystem, providing homes for thousands of species of insects, birds and mammals.
