Certainly Wood - Trees For Life
Certainly Wood encourages the planting of trees for more woodland creation in Herefordshire, enhancing the environment for a sustainable future.
“We have been planting trees in Herefordshire for many years and provide an opportunity for our customers to pay just £4 to have a tree planted in one of our many planting schemes. We are keen to accelerate these projects and with the ever increasing need to plant more trees in the UK we hope you can help. It’s time for us all to do our bit” Nic Snell Managing Director.
Why plant more trees?
Trees are entirely positive. We need more to be planted and particularly here in Herefordshire and surrounding counties. The UK is way behind the rest of Europe in terms of land planted with trees.
- Clean our air by releasing oxygen and storing carbon via CO2 absorption.
- Provide beautiful and stunning landscapes, both rural and urban
- Improve community life
- Improve the environmental balance with a greater range of flora and fauna
- Provide a sustainable source of wood fuel
If 10,00 hectares of woodland are planted every year, the new trees will lock away a massive 50 million tonnes of carbon by 2050.
The Climate Change Act 2008 requires the government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050. We need to reduce CO2 emissions, reduce our fuel usage and switch to renewable energy. Planting trees has the ability to help in every way.
A single tree will, on average, absorb a tonne of CO2 during its lifetime.
You could be part of this great tree planting revival, every tree counts. Imagine if you , and everyone else in the UK, planted just one tree per annum. That would be over 60 million extra trees a year.
Britain has the largest population of 'ancient' trees in Europe. Britain's oldest tree is believe to be over 3000 years old.
At Certainly Wood we are passionate about creating new woodland within Herefordshire and across the UK and we have been involved in tree planting for many years. When you place an order with us for 'plant a tree' we won't just plant the tree, we will keep you informed on what's happening all the way through their life. We want you to be part of the journey.
The average home produces nine tonnes of CO2 every year
