Choose a tree or shrub which appeals to you and is appropriate for your space – native species are best for wildlife. Visit your local nursery or order a tree online and get digging! See our feature ‘Plant a Tree for Wildlife’ for more information.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide, reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. They improve air quality, stabilise the soil, help prevent flooding and increase biodiversity. As well as these practical benefits, having trees in our environment also improves our mental wellbeing.
