Tree Action UK

1 Minute Read
Tree Action UK is a not for profit community interest company that organises tree planting events in schools, colleges, public spaces and on private land to improve the environment, tackle climate change and improve the mental wellbeing of young people through connecting them with nature. With the help of experienced arboriculturalists, conservation volunteers, local authorities, schools, and environmental organisations, Tree Action UK identify suitable locations for tree planting, organise and fundraise for the events and on-going maintenance programmes.

Here at The Garden Superstore, we are proud to be supporting Tree Action UK in their latest tree planting project at Warden Park Secondary Academy in West Sussex. 

Last year, Ben Woods, English teacher and House Coordinator at Warden Park Secondary Academy started a school Eco-Committee with the idea of raising awareness of the global climate crisis and how the school could help. Since its inception, the school has seen a significant increase in recycling and interest in the environment.

Attached to the school is a large plot of land which, with the help of several members of staff, was partially cleared in 2019. It had once been a thriving allotment area, used by both the school and the local community for growing a variety of fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately, over time it had been left and had become overgrown. 

Their goal with the support of Tree Action UK is to plant hundreds of trees on the school grounds, with Warden Park students involved developing a woodland that they will help to maintain.
