We at the Woodland trust are so excited to plant 50 million trees by 2025
We at the Woodland trust are so excited to plant 50 million trees by 2025. The goal is to reach this number in order to ensure that we leave a better world for our children and grandchildren.
We hope that this project will inspire other people to do the same and make a difference in the world.
The Woodland Trust has partnered with the UK Government’s Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in order to ensure that we leave a better world for our children and grandchildren.
The UK’s largest woodland conservation charity announces the launch of The Big Fightback to tackle climate change and urges the nation to take action.
The Woodland Trust planted more than 4 million trees this year and next. We’re very proud of this incredible achievement. But The Big Climate Fightback wants to plant even more this decade – 50 million in total! This is a great goal, so please chip in where you can & make it happen!
The charity is sending 600,000 free trees to community groups & schools and a £1million Emergency Tree Fund so that local authorities can increase tree cover in their area.
The project will involve 12 local authorities initially and is likely to become even more extensive if successful.
The Woodland Trust is urging the public to take action now and plant trees to help us combat climate change! To make it easier, they have released their tree planting guide which includes the perfect plants for specific climates.
If you don’t have access to a garden, you can still make a difference by seeking out local politicians who are in support of your initiative and donating money or starting your own social media campaign.
While our efforts to reduce the effects of covid-19 on the planet are starting to show results, many parts of the country still struggle to get rid of this toxin. It’s possible we won’t be able to control it in time.
To combat the effects of climate change, the Trust is calling on millions of people to plant trees throughout November. This will be the biggest single-month mass-planting campaign ever seen in the UK.
In 2019, the Government pledged to plant 50 million trees in order to achieve net-zero carbon by 2050— but the results are yet to be seen, as The Trust’s CEO Darren Moorcroft argues: “A year on from many big promises and statements about the need for more trees in order to achieve carbon net-zero by 2050, they mainly remain just that, words.”
Our role in tackling the climate crisis is critical – we know the clock is ticking and so do we. Let’s get to it, team!
Trees help reduce pollution by absorbing carbon in the air and limiting water evaporation. They also soak up carbon dioxide as they grow, which is one of the most potent greenhouse gases.
Join our climate change army today! By pledging to plant a tree in November, you are taking action against the risks posed by global warming and helping us achieve our goal of reducing greenhouse gas content.
