Tree planting is catching on. Even the Daily Mail are promoting tree planting!
South West Water marks National Tree Week with promise to plant 100,000 trees
South West Water has announced plans to plant at least 100,000 trees over the next 10 years.
The water company will work with key partners to plant trees on land provided by partners such as the National Trust and The Wildlife Trusts as well as its own property. The Woodland Trust has agreed to help identify sites and manage the planting programme once it is developed. South West Water also anticipates working with a wide range of delivery partners such as local councils, Viridor, The Wildlife Trusts, South West Lakes Trust and Westcountry Rivers Trust.
To celebrate National Tree Week Yorkshire Water has announced that it will complete the planting of 250,000 by spring as it closes in on its target of planting one million across the county. The company has put helping the environment at the forefront of its plans and will be carbon net zero by 2030, with its ambitious tree pledge playing a key role in reducing its emissions. A typical hardwood tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon a year.
