Volunteer

 

We need more planting power and we’d love to have you on board

let us plant on your patch

Why volunteer?

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 planting trees and hedges, as well as maintenance on our sponsorship sites.

Newly planted trees require clearing round for the first five years to prevent them from being overrun by grass and weeds, a point that is often overlooked in planting schemes.

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.
