Looking Forwards…

For the first time in months we are able to start planning and looking forward to the next tree planting season – we hope you are too! 

We look forward to welcoming back our sponsors, volunteers, schools and supporters in November 2021 as we plant our 100,000th tree for the project.

We have scheduled our Friends and Family planting for March 2022 and we will update this page with further details about the site as soon as possible.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding and we hope you are keeping safe and well. 

Remember, challenging times bring problems, but problems always nurture creativity thinking and creative thinking always brings solutions!  

Thank you for your understanding and please continue to watch this space for more updates.
