Field to Forest Foundation came about to solve a problem.
Over 70% of British land is farmland. There is a huge opportunity to use this land to plant trees, increase soil carbon and create habitats.
Many farmers can’t put trees all their land over to trees and they must grow food or rear animals, but they still have space to plant trees in areas that aren’t suitable for farming, or as part of their farming practices. This means, however, that they often don’t qualify for grant funding. So all those potential trees don’t get planted
We provide a way for individuals and businesses to do something about their carbon footprint locally. They can fund planting projects in their area, connecting to farmers and helping change agriculture from being a net carbon emitter to the industry it could be. One that sequesters carbon through trees and it’s soil, provides habitats for wildlife, manages water and makes the UK a greener nicer place for everyone.
Each tree costs £12, this pays for the planting, protection and ongoing maintenance.
