Corporate Tree Planting Projects

We have a very attractive project in Cardeston just a few miles south of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, where we are planting some 20,000 Natural Broadleaved Trees.

This block of woodland is at a position 05241.8N - 00253.6'W and is adjacent to an existing old woodland named Cardeston Old Wood (COW for short!).  It consists of a newly planted selection of Oaks, Ash, Cherry and Beech being the main trees to produce the canopy of leaves for carbon dioxide absorption (Info! Sequestration). The woodland has access to the public with rides and tracks and additional areas are being planted up with Hawthorn, Rowan and Silver Birch to encourage birds and wildlife.

In all, a block of woodland designed the be enjoyable but more importantly to absorb as much Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere as possible . We are planting at a rate of 1000 trees per acre so that a complete canopy is produced within a few years. The mixture of trees is designed to absorb Carbon Dioxide (CO2) at a rate in excess of 400 tonnes per acre over the next seventy to one hundred years. Throughout the growing cycle of the canopy some trees will need to be taken out  to allow the stronger trees to grow in order to maintain a complete canopy of leaves for optimum sequestration

If you wish to sponsor a tree, a block of trees, or approximately a one tonne offset parcel it will be locatable with your own unique GPS co-ordinate (Global Positioning System). You will receive a certificate (Sample Certificate) showing your sponsorship and it's co-ordinates. So, if you want to visit the woodland or you are in the area, you can go and see for yourself.

The planting and woodland management is overseen by a well known independent company of land agents, Berry Bros www.berrybros.com. They are there to ensure that the trees planted and maintained for optimum performance.

In all, it will be an asset for generations to come, it will help the wildlife and more importantly 'THE WORLD'

Use our Carbon Footprint Calculator to establish your Carbon Footprint!

When you consider that the typical British carbon footprint is 10.92 tonnes per person (Environment Agency) and we need to reduce that by 20% by 2012 and 60% by 2050 we have got a lot to do.

If you wish, you can offset some or all of your emissions here or just sponsor a tree.

EVERY BIT HELPS!

The more trees you choose to sponsor,
The more trees we will plant.
