UK Tree Planting
Plant trees in your region of the UK
Planting is a great way to help sequester carbon emissions. Through photosynthesis trees absorb carbon dioxide to produce oxygen and wood. By ensuring that trees planted are native broad leaf species this helps to preserve the environment and biodiversity. Planting takes place in school locations and other protected biodiversity sites. All trees are high quality cell grown 'whips' (year old saplings) and are tagged with unique identification codes.
By supporting our programme not only are you planting trees in your region of the UK you will also be helping to:
- Provide wildlife habitats & support biodiversity
- Plant native British trees
- Enhance the natural UK landscape
- Offset CO2 emissions
Plant a Tree - Protect a Tree
For every tree that you pledge, a tonne of carbon will also be saved in the Brazilian Amazon via our VCS avoided deforestation programme. In this way, you will be offsetting carbon, planting and protecting forests and biodiversity in 2 continents.

'Carbon Footprint Ltd organised a super afternoon of planting at school. Sixty of our children dug, planted and backfilled their way through 200 trees to develop the grounds, support wildlife and of course improve the air quality at school. Many thanks for their buoyant enthusiasm.'

Also, we have planted common alder, crab apple, silver birch, spindle bush & goat willow.
Note - we are currently not planting Ash due to Chalara Ash die back fungus.
Following a QAS approved carbon footprint calculation, this tree planting package (which also includes retiring Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) credits from registered projects) meets the requirements under the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) for Carbon Offsetting.
As the carbon offsetting is guaranteed by retiring high quality VCS credits, this UK tree planting project will also meet BSi's PAS 2060 guidance on carbon neutrality, therefore assuring your carbon neutral claims.
