North Devon woodland appeal

There’s wonder to be found in our woodlands, but increasingly these spaces are being threatened. Donate today and help us plant over one hundred thousand trees along the whole of the North Devon coast, from West Exmoor, to Woolacombe right down to Bideford Bay, to help combat climate change and build a natural corridor to give our wildlife a better chance.

Help us plant trees to protect nature

We can’t hide from the changes around us - temperatures are rising, air quality is suffering, and our wildlife is at risk. In the UK many vital types of habitat, including broadleaf woodland, are threatened. Starting this winter and running for the next couple of years we will plant over 100,000 native broadleaf trees to help combat habitat loss and create a wildlife corridor. Crucially these trees will also help fight climate change by breathing life into the environment, absorbing carbon dioxide and regulating temperatures.

North Devon Woodland Appeal Facts

  • Just one tree can absorb up to 1 tonne of CO2 in its lifetime
  • The trees will provide a home for birds, bats and butterflies that otherwise may not have a home.
  • These trees will help remove the equivalent of 230 cars from the road.
" There are great benefits to gain from tree-planting. We can improve valuable habitats and biodiversity while making an impact on carbon emissions that contribute climate change. Besides all of this, trees create a wonderful oasis to escape for peace and tranquility."
- Catherine Wright
