Capturing and storing carbon in the atmosphere is vital in the fight against climate change. By making a donation to the Woodland Trust, you'll help plant trees and protect woodland across the UK, locking up carbon and creating havens of green space for wildlife and people.

Other ways to help

Everyday actions like driving to work or heating our homes release a significant amount of carbon, but we can all do our bit to tackle CO2 emissions. Why not join a car share scheme at work, give public transport a go or simply turn down the heating? Recycle as much as possible and always turn the lights off when you leave a room.
