Add £2 to fund a tree which will more than offset the carbon footprint of your parcel.
We are calling on our customers to support a fantastic local initiative, “Stump up for Trees,” whose mission is to plant a million trees in the Brecon Beacons area over the next 2 years. By taking action together we can begin to make a difference.
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.
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. The 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.
We will be sharing images of the woodland developments in our community as the whole project takes off.
Please STUMP UP FOR TREES!
