The Amazing Work Tree Appeal Do
Since 2005 Tree Appeal has planted over 450,000 trees in locations across the UK. Every card plants another one! All trees are native broadleaf species such as oak, beech and hazel. Grown in the UK from collected seed chosen for their beneficial effects on biodiversity and habitat creation.
The Need for More Trees
A considerable percentage of our native broad-leaved trees are in their latter years of maturity which makes them very vulnerable to storm damage and natural decay.
Over the last 50 years, 45% of our ancient, semi-natural woodland has been cleared or converted to commercial plantations. This loss was further compounded by additional losses of approximately 19 million trees that were destroyed in the storms of 1987 and 1990. It is also estimated that more than 30 million trees were killed by Dutch Elm Disease. Now Ash Dieback is looking to be an even greater threat to our population of trees. There are 80 million ash trees at risk, which represents 10% of our native trees.
The results of our encroachment and destruction of woodland habitat by deforestation during the last century, in this country alone, has seen more than 100 species of animals become extinct with many more on the endangered list. Nearly a fifth of Britain’s wild plants and flowers are under threat and the chances of seeing many of them in the wild are growing slimmer by the year.
Forests throughout the world contain around 45% of the global stock of carbon. With the massive deforestations that continue throughout the world, our planet is struggling to cope with the increase of carbon dioxide polluting our atmosphere.
Why Tree Planting?
Trees provide woodland habitats for a wide array of plants, flowers, birds, mammals and insects. Without these vital habitats and the means to propagate and pollinate, many more of our valuable plants and wildlife would suffer as a direct consequence. With tree planting, you can make a very real contribution to the environment and take a positive step toward offsetting your carbon footprint.
