Please help us Plant our 100,000th tree
Following a year that no one expected we are planning on recovering from last years lack of tree planting events due to the Covid19 restrictions by planting the 100,000th tree for our project!
BTFL started planting trees in 2006 and had up to last year (2020) planted just over 90,000 trees.
Now we need your help to plant another 10,000 trees this season (November 2021 – March 2022).
The natural environment is no different from a business environment. Just like any successful business, trees and woodlands need management, teamwork, care, expertise, effort – and investment. In short, they need you.
By sponsoring tree planting your company can help improve the environment in which your employees work and live and create a legacy for future generations.
Planting trees can make a positive contribution in the fight against climate change and help to compensate for any negative impact your company’s activities might have on the local environment. Helping us to create or replace woodland and work with local people to improve their green spaces, can help your business to be recognised as a responsible and caring participant in the community and contribute to your CSR objectives. All our trees are planted in parks and open spaces freely accessible to the public.
Your donation helps to fund the planting and initial care of the trees for the first two years until they are established.
The Woodland Trust provides us with native woodland whips for our community woodland plantings, but we also plant more mature standard trees in some settings that cost around £25 per tree.
If you would like to help sponsor our ‘Trees for Life’ 100,000 trees planted project this year please download the corporate sponsorship form Complete it, donate and return it to us by email so we can send you your certificate.
Or if you just want to make an online donation you can visit our Just Giving Page
Unfortunately, this season we can’t offer any new corporate volunteering packages that we have been able to provide in previous years, due to commitments carried over from last year and having to ensure we will be able to abide by any winter Covid19 restrictions that may need to be put in place.
So, for this year there is no minimum sponsorship amount every pound will help get us to our 100,000th tree planted.
But we will be creating a “Forest of Fame” webpage for any sponsors that would like their sponsorship to be displayed on our website.
What about next year?
Well hopefully we’ll be back to business as usual for our 2022-2023 planting season (November 2022 to March 2023) welcoming you all out to our tree plantings in your wellies and walking boots to plant trees, team building workdays and more.
We want to thank all of our past sponsors, those who have already sponsored tree plantings for this year, and you because you are here and that means you care about trees.
If you can sponsor us this year that’s really great if you want to wait until normal service resumes next season – we understand please contact us to register your interest for next seasons volunteering and workdays.
