Reforestation Partnership

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we have a reforestation partnership with One Tree Planted and for every challenge pack ordered we plant one tree in the United Kingdom.

One Tree Planted are a non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation. They have planted over 100 million trees in more than 80 countries across the globe since 2014.

Reforestation is the process of replanting trees in areas that have been affected by natural disturbances like wildfires, drought, and insect and disease infestations and unnatural ones like logging, mining, agricultural clearing, and development. This can mean anything from supporting natural regeneration in an area that has been degraded to planting ecologically appropriate tree seedlings after forest fires.

About One Tree Planted in the U.K.

“The United Kingdom used to have glorious forest coverage, but changes in land use have caused extensive deforestation. In addition to being critical to protecting the climate, forests also build community. These reforestation projects will be highly engaging, community-led initiatives to create educational opportunities, volunteer planting events, and public spaces so that everyone, including the most marginalized communities, can enjoy the native flora and fauna of the United Kingdom.

These trees will make a significant climate impact, sequestering carbon and creating climate resilience by reducing flooding and the effects of pollution. This project supports increased access to public woodland, especially for communities in need, with opportunities for community engagement and improved public health. Organizations will be able to integrate the project with school education to get children out in nature.

As to maximize the overall benefit to the area, we will plant native trees such as Pedunculate/Common Oak, Downy Birch, Hazel, Hawthorn, Small-leaved lime, Rowan, Silver Birch, Common Alder, Aspen, Goat Willow, Field Maple, Hornbeam, Beech, and Blackthorn.”
