The Woodland Trust is launching a “Big Climate Fightback”. The campaigns aim is to get one million people to join the fight against climate change by pledging to plant a tree by Saturday 30 November 2019.
The day falls in National Tree Week, a week of tree planting organised by the Tree Council and is also Tree Charter Day – a national day of celebration of trees and woods.
The Woodland Trust will be hosting public tree planting days across the UK on 30 November. There will be at least one event in each of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and at least five events across England. The flagship event will be held in Derbyshire at its new Young People’s Forest at Mead, near Heanor. It will also be sending out over 700,000 free trees to schools and communities for planting in late November.
There are lots of different ways to get involved:
- Attend a tree planting event
- Plant a tree in your garden
- Host your own tree planting event with neighbours or colleagues.
- Become a member of the Woodland Trust
- Make a donation to the Woodland Trust so it can plant trees for you
- Speak to your local council about tree planting opportunities in your area, or ask them to host an event
- Share #EveryTreeCounts on social media and encourage your followers to get involved.
The Woodland Trust have also said that if you are unable to plant a tree as part of The Big Climate Fightback, you can still play your part. Simply pledge and make a donation to the Woodland Trust and we will plant a tree for you.
