Here at E4environment we are carrying out an exciting tree planting project in which 4500 native British trees were planted in March 2015 on four and half hectares of our surrounding farmland. Each tree has been grown from seed in individual cells and are now established and growing well. The woodland is made up of 10% Black Poplar, 10% Holly, 10% Field Maple, 10% Birch, 30% Pedunculate Oak and 30% Common Alder. We are offering the opportunity for businesses and individuals to sponsor a tree from our woodland in Shropshire.
With support from the Woodland Trust, and in association with Shropshire Wildlife Trust, an MSc student from Harper Adams University is carrying out research into how the planting of woodland can help to stabilise floodplains. With the results of this research we’re hoping to inspire a boost in the planting of trees as part of the UK’s Climate Change Plan.
In March 2017, we planted a further 5000 British Native trees on an area of vulnerable, floodplain in Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain, Wales on the banks of the River Vyrnwy. Here the riparian landscape can vary from day to day, with high discharges eroding and carrying large areas of embankment with it. The trees here are to help stabilise the land and rescue the landscape.
You are just a few clicks away from sponsoring a tree from your home or office and making a small but positive impact on the planet’s health. By sponsoring just one, two, or even twenty trees you are taking part in a project which, over the next few decades, will absorb many tonnes of carbon dioxide right here in Shropshire.
On sponsorship, you will receive a certificate that allocates each tree to you. We do this by number tagging the trees so we can identify yours. You will also be provided with the tree’s grid reference so you know exactly where it is!
We now offer gift packs for individual dedication, a perfect way to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and more. Trees are £10 each.
