Everyone knows trees are great for the planet, but did you know that they’re great for people too?
Lancashire Woodland Connect is a campaign that will strengthen the bond between people, trees, and nature by taking the areas existing woodlands and joining them up, as well as creating new woodlands for the benefit of people, nature and the planet.
Over the next decade the campaign will double the area of woodland across Lancashire to fight climate change, improve air quality and reduce flooding. Together with the help of our supporters and volunteers, as well as partner organisations including Lune Rivers Trust and Wyre Rivers Trust, we will plant more than half a million trees to reduce flooding, improve air quality, and remove 100,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
To pay for it all we need to raise £500,000 per year of funding from public and private sector partners, grants, and the general public in order to raise £5 million.
You can be a part of the campaign and help make your local community greener and cleaner by donating just £15.00 to plant a tree.
You will get a report on your trees journey and growth, as well as photo updates of the woodland your tree is part of. Your donation will support and enable us to deliver the Lancashire Woodland Connect campaign to plant 500,000 trees across Lancashire.
