Tree Planting with Co-forest
Thanks to our recent partnership with Forest of Avon Trust, a few of the team were lucky enough to get involved with some tree planting earlier this month, organised by local reforestation charity, Co-forest.
The weather was perfect and we were delighted to get stuck in and help with such a great cause.
We were very grateful for Wendy, Co-forest’s volunteer co-ordinator, who made us feel so welcome and kept everything so well-organised; we were pleased to be planting within just a few minutes of arriving. Invigorated by the fresh air and happy with our efforts, the team left the site smiling. We are looking forward to seeing the forest thrive.
Throughout the day, the volunteer group collectively planted 275 trees near Almondsbury, at Co-forest’s first forest site: Acorn. We hope that it’s the first of many sites across the country. Chaunceys hope to send volunteers again in future to help maintain and expand native forests.
Surviving the storms
We were concerned that storms Eunice and Franklin had damaged many of the trees but we were relieved to hear that although a few of the trees were blown over, some of the charity’s lovely volunteers helped hammer the stakes back in and upright the trees. They are regularly visiting them to keep them happy and healthy.
Partnered with Forest of Avon Trust, Co-forest have been planting native deciduous trees near Bath and Bristol since November 2021, and they are aiming to plant over 10,000 trees this year.
With our love of trees and shared views on sustainability, we have pledged our support to the Forest of Avon Trust, now and for years to come. As part of their ‘Ten Goals in Ten Years,’ they aim to plant a further 500,000 native trees by 2030.
