Trees are essential for people, wildlife and the environment.
It is well documented that global warming is happening at a faster rate than ever. Polar ice caps are melting and deforestation is widespread across the world.
Adverse climate change can cause irreversible damage to our ecosystems and impact on billions of people around the world.
Trees help fight the cruel effects of a changing climate.
To help reach the UK government's 2050 target to become carbon net zero – that’s removing as much carbon as we’re producing – we need more trees.
Trees are the ultimate carbon capture and storage machines. They can help:
On Saturday 25th February 2023, a dedicated team of volunteers from the Club and staff members from Haydon School, planted 16 fruit trees on the School ground.
The fruit trees will help in many ways, including fighting climate change.
They will also provide the school with a variety of fruits, which the school will use in providing meals for children.
Haydon School already has a well developed school garden producing a variety of vegetables. The fruit trees will be a welcome addition.
