Support Trees for Weston

4th April 2024

The Weston Tree and Plant Group, a dedicated collective of individuals, organisations, and businesses working towards a greener and more sustainable future for the town of Weston-super-Mare.

Their Mission:
Their mission is clear – to increase tree canopy levels and biodiversity across Weston-super-Mare. We believe that by coming together and collaborating, we can multiply the benefits to our town and create a more healthy and vibrant community.

Their Opportunity:
In alignment with the UK government’s plan to enact mandatory Task Force on Climate related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) -aligned requirements for climate reporting, we see a unique opportunity for businesses to contribute to the future of Weston-super-Mare. Investing in tree planting is not just a climate-friendly initiative, it’s an investment in the health, well-being, and economic vitality of our town.

Why Trees Matter:
Trees play a crucial role in our urban environment, from reducing the risk of flooding to
providing shade and improving air quality. The benefits extend to increased property values,
lower rates of prescribed anti-depressants, and improved overall well-being.

Our Objective:
Our goal is ambitious yet achievable – to plant 10,000 trees in the coming years. With your support, we can turn this vision into a reality and make a lasting impact on our town’s landscape.

We invite your business to join us in this noble cause. Your company, whatever size can contribute, whether through funding tree and planting projects, providing land for planting or encouraging your staff to participate in volunteer days.

The We SEE Trees Community Tree Nursery:
Additionally, we are excited to share news about our new tree nursery in the Maltlands area of the Winterstoke ward. This community-led space will be instrumental in growing and nurturing trees for future planting, further enhancing our commitment to the environment.

Get Involved:
Your involvement can make a significant difference. By supporting the growing and planting of trees in our local area, your business becomes a vital part of creating a sustainable and thriving Weston-super-Mare.
