Across the rest of the UK
At the other end of the UK, Tiverton Tree Team in Devon let us know that the trees they received as part of I Dig Trees were being planted on Saturday 30th November across 3 sites as part of Mid Devon Council’s vision to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.
Hundreds of UK community groups have joined forces with voluntary, private and public sector organisations to address the climate emergency by planting trees this National Tree Week.
Darren York, TCV Chief Executive
National Tree Week not only focused on planting trees on land where trees are not currently planted, but expanding our woods and forests to help the reforestation in England, which is at record low rates.
TCV National Forest teamed up with Coton-In-The-Elms Primary School to plant trees in Swadlincote. The National Forest is 200 square miles of mixed habitat forest stretching from the western outskirts of Leicester to Burton upon Trent in the Midlands.
