We need more planting power and we’d love to have you on board
sponsor a tree
let us plant on your patch
Any charitable organisations rely on the goodwill and enthusiasm of like-minded donors, sponsors and volunteers. Here at Trees for Shropshire, a large part of our work is tree planting, installing the bird and hedgehog boxes and, most importantly, the maintenance of these.
Newly planted trees require clearing round for the first five years to prevent them being over run by grass and weeds, a point that is often overlooked in planting schemes.
Our bird and hedgehog boxes will require annual checks, cleaning out and any repairs carried out- so volunteer now.
Benefits of volunteering
There are many positive benefits to volunteering. It’s widely accepted that it can help self- confidence, relieve stress and anxiety, combat depression, give a sense of purpose, increase physical fitness, connect us with like-minded people, make new friends and contacts and is great for families to get involved together. Due to the nature of our work, it gets us out in the fresh air and reconnects us with the great outdoors.
So Come On
Join our volunteer group ‘A Leg Up for Trees’ now.
Pull on your boots, get out in the fresh air, and together we can make a tangible difference, for our environment and for ourselves.
