What happens at the Tree Planting Event?
Events typically last up to 3h -though this will depend on how many trees you have to plant.
At schools events, we split the event up into age groups. Each group receives an age appropriate introduction to the importance of tree planting to the environment and biodiversity before a demonstration on how to plant. Then the planting begins.
Throughout the event, there is a mixture of reportage style as well as more formal photography.
Wherever possible we will try to arrange photographs of your team leader with the head of school/key members of the nature reserve.
What press will I get?
We will provide you with pre and post event press releases for your use.
Many of our client use these with local media (for community targets), but also use for trade press and also within corporate/stakeholder communications (including their annual reports).
How many trees will I plant?
We recommend at least 200 trees as a suitable gift to the school/nature reserve;this also provides a suitable number to keep all the team busy on the day planting.
What do we need to bring with us?
We organise the whole event for you - so you just need to west suitable clothing (be prepared for a little rain!) and your wells/walking shoes.
