Carbon Footprint is on a mission to give FREE TREES to schools
School children can plant these trees around the school grounds to enrich their environment.
Trees are awesome
Trees are so beautiful aren’t they. They give us the air we breathe and provide homes and food for both humans and wildlife. But best of all – they make us feel happy. So let’s celebrate trees by planting more of them.
Help me to support Carbon Footprint
Why not join me and sponsor a tree or even a few trees? You can even choose the area in the UK that your tree(s) will be planted in.
Free trees for schools
The UK Tree Planting project is a scheme run by the charity Carbon Footprint who give FREE TREES to schools. They also organise corporate tree planting events.
Who are Carbon Footprint?
The charity Carbon Footprint helps businesses and individuals to reduce their carbon footprint through their Carbon Offsetting Projects. They tackle climate change by supporting communities across the world helping them to reduce their carbon footprint. One element of their work is the UK Tree Planting Project.
How do schools and the environment benefit?
School children get to have fun outdoors planting young trees while working in groups. They create woodland habitats which are great for local wildlife while improving the environment for themselves and future generations of school children. The habitats they create are also enjoyed by the wider community too. The children increase their appreciation of the natural world around them and learn about the importance of biodiversity and environmental issues.
What kinds of trees are given to schools?
All the trees are native broadleaf species and are grown in the UK. They include Hawthorn, Sessile Oak, Hazel, Downy Birch, Guelder Rose, Field Maple, Rowan, English Oak, Blackthorn and Wild Cherry.
Who can sponsor a tree?
Anyone can sponsor one or more trees to be planted by school children. That includes both individuals and businesses of course. Primary, secondary and higher education schools receive their free tree packs containing canes and rabbit guard spirals which protect the trees as they grow. The packs also include instructions and guidance about how to plant and care for the trees.
Have you got a corporate event coming up?
Yay, why not get involved yourself in a tree planting event and have fun outdoors inspiring the next generation? You’ll be helping to meet your sustainability targets at the same time. The charity Carbon Footprint can organise the event for you. Check out their corporate tree planting events.
By having a tree planting corporate event;
- You will be creating wildlife habitats & supporting biodiversity
- Planting native British trees
- Enhancing the natural UK landscape
- Offsetting CO2 emissions
