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 actually make a difference to our environment. This equates to about 23 trees per person in the UK.

Obviously 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 and its adjoining counties. They will be home grown from UK seed stock of native broad leaf species. Planting schemes will include clearings and habitat for wildlife rather than just block planting.

Our plan for installing and maintaining hundreds of bird and hedgehog boxes throughout the region will ensure that our grandchildren will be able to enjoy the rich variety of wildlife that we enjoyed as children.

We are a not for profit organisation.

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.
