Stump up for Trees in the Brecon Beacons

We are calling on you to support “Stump up for Trees,” an amazingly ambitious community-based charity, focused on woodland creation & enhancing biodiversity in the Brecon Beacons and South East Wales. Its mission, to plant a million trees in the area over the next 2 years using innovative public-private funding initiatives.

Trees give life. It is hard to overstate their benefits. Trees provide wildlife habitat, food, better air and water quality, medicine, shade, sustainable timber, natural flood management and healthier soils. Most importantly in today’s urgent debate about climate change, trees also sequester carbon dioxide.

Please help us to plant more trees, and plant them well.

It costs, on average, £4 to plant and maintain one tree for 12 years in this area (£5 with fencing). BMS will match fund each £2 contribution made by you, to tend a tree to a self-sustaining age & stage. Add £2 to your order here.

As a family, we are committed to planting a thousand trees as a measure to offset unavoidable food miles, plastic and energy use at BMS.  Our plan is to plant up the top ends of our 3 small fields with mixed hardwoods including plenty of Chestnut, which can be managed by coppicing in the future.  Also, to replenish our wonderful ancient hedgerows creating wider, thicker and more effective wildlife corridors.

This is what we have raised so far with your help:
