Looking for a lasting Christmas gift? Plant a tree with the National Trust for your loved one
Plant a tree this Christmas and you'll be helping to plant and establish 20 million trees by 2030. Trees are essential for life. They clean the air we breathe, lock up carbon as they grow and provide homes for wildlife.
We know that trees are one of our best natural defences against climate change which is devastating places where people and nature can thrive. We predict that planting and establishing 20 million trees will, at their peak store, around 300,000 tonnes of carbon a year.
There's no time to lose. We must plan for the future of woodlands so we can tackle the nature and climate crises together. Plant a tree today and support life for years to come.
