Rotary International President Ian Riseley, has set a challenge for every Rotary member worldwide to plant at least one tree in 2018. The help of the public is very much needed!
At the Woodland Trust we have stepped in and supported this challenge by offering free trees and advice to make sure the saplings have the best chance of survival.
If all Rotary members here in Great Britain and Ireland take part, over 47,000 trees will be planted. That’s the equivalent of a forest the size of a hundred football pitches springing up!
Worldwide there could be over a million trees placed in forests which are under threat from disappearing.
This challenge is a lovely way to involve communities and activities will vary from extending and under-planting existing woods to enhancing parks and open spaces.
