Using trees to protect trees

There are over three trillion trees on the planet which not only play a vital role in producing the oxygen we breathe, but also absorb the carbon dioxide emissions we produce. Trees store carbon, making woodland soil rich in organic materials as a result. In addition, forests provide rich habitat for our wildlife. This means the protection of existing trees and the planting of new ones is crucial to tackling the climate crisis and protecting our ecosystem.

Tree cover in the UK is far lower than its closest neighbours – just 13% compared to the European average of 38%. The UK plants approximately 45 million trees every year, mostly for commercial use. The UK government has pledged to more than double the number of trees planted annually, with a target of 90-120 million trees a year necessary for the country to achieve its aim of being carbon net-zero by 2050.
