This week marks the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, National Tree Week. Organised by The Tree Council, the event encourages us to plant trees to protect our environment. It began in 1973 in response to the Dutch Elm Disease Crisis of the 1960’s and now thousands of trees are planted during the event every year.
Our environment remains at the heart of Earth Science Partnership; it’s a big part of who we are and what we do. This year we are delighted to have supported World Land Trust’s initiative to ‘Buy An Acre’ and ‘Plant A Tree’, projects which protect a threatened habitat and save it from risks such as deforestation for agriculture, cattle ranching and development. Our donation secured 5 acres of threatened land and saw 100 native trees planted to protect tropical forests.
