'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.'

Richard Gasser, Headteacher, Park Junior School.


What happens at the Tree Planting Event?

  • Events typically last up to 3 hours - 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). 
  • We can organise local media photo calls and content for press releases.

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.
  • The tree species are selected by the school/ nature reserve to fit in with their local biodiversity.

What do we need to bring with us?

  • We organise the whole event for you - so you just need to wear suitable clothing (be prepared for a little rain!) and your wellies/walking shoes.
