The UK has one of the lowest tree cover rates in Europe, just 13% compared to a European average of 37%.

Our Environmental partner, the Woodland Trust, stands up for trees, but they want our support. They’re on a bold, ambitious journey to plant 64 million trees by 2025 and we can help them.

As well as the tree planting days that we have been organising, they are also offering us the chance to claim a free pack of native tree seeds (Holly, Rowan, Alder buckthorn and Dog Rose) so that we can plant and grow our own trees this coming autumn.

If you would like to grow native trees on your own land, why not claim your free seed pack now and help make a difference! Find out more here.

About our partnership with the Woodland Trust

We voluntarily mitigate 2,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum from our business operations, on top of taking other measures to reduce our carbon footprint.

In 2015 alone we helped fund the planting of trees across 50,000m2 at Woodland Trust sites across the UK. This is the equivalent of five football pitches.

From 2016 we pledged that we would not only mitigate emissions that we cannot reduce from our office energy use, but also our business car mileage, continuing the environmental commitment.
