Make the world a greener place with a Tree Membership
Trees matter. They take in the carbon dioxide we produce and give us the oxygen we need to breathe. They provide food, shelter, a place to rest, to nest and gather. In short, we need more trees. We need clean air to breathe, to thrive and to be healthy, and wildlife need trees to rest and nest, to shelter and to feed.
So if you're looking for gifts to help keep the world green or to turn it into a greener place, here's 5 gift memberships you could take a look at:
|Give a Gift Membership to the Tree Council |
The Tree Council organises National Tree Week in late November through to December, as well as other initiatives throughout the year. It's the UK's lead charity for trees, promoting their importance. It's responsible for a community action programme which includes National Tree Week and Walk in the Woods month (May) and it also manages a national voluntary Tree Warden Scheme. It also raises funds and distributes grants for planing trees, woodland wild flowers and hedges.
Give someone a Friend of the Tree Council, and you'll help the charity put trees in school playgrounds, train Tree Warden who plant, care for and champion trees in their communities and act on issues of national concern. Here's how to give a membership to the Tree Council.
The Woodland Trust has planted a whopping 36 million trees since 1972 which equates to more than a tree a minute! It's championed and protected woodland and given wildlife a chance to thrive by creating wildlife corridors between habitats which have become fragmented.
You can give a gift membership and support this vital work, prices start from £36.00 for a single gift membership or £42.00 for a joint one. Click here to find out more
Give a Gift Membership to Trees for Life
The Caledonian Forest is a very important forest ecosystem, providing a home for spectacular wildlife. But it's severely fragmented, and in many places it consists entirely of old trees. Give a gift membership from £3.00 a month and help support Trees for Life in their work.
Help the World Land Trust protect the world's endangered habitats and their wildlife by giving someone you love the gift of a Friend of the World Land Trust. Make your commitment to the world's endangered habitats and their wildlife by becoming a WLT Friend today for £5 or more a month. This enables the WLT to plan for future land purchases. Your donation will go into the WLT Action Fund to help fund their most urgent project needs.
You'll receive an annual letter to confirm your donations throughout the year, a Friend Card as recognition of your support and if you have requested them, the WLT News and eBulletins and notification of WLT events. Visit the ITF for more information.
The ITF helps local communities build secure livelihoods and improve their local environment through sustainable tree planting programmes. It works with local organisations to support community forestry projects in the UK and Africa.
