NATURE PROJECTS

Take a look at the map below to choose the nature project nearest to you. This is where your trees would be planted. You, your family and the local community can all visit these reserves and see the natural habitats regenerate and thrive – for years to come.

The black pins show the Woodland Projects that are live now, whilst the grey pins shows those coming soon.

Quality assurance – the Woodland carbon code

The Woodland Carbon Code (WCC) is the quality assurance standard for UK-based woodland creation projects, and generates high integrity, independently verified carbon units. WCC is internationally recognised for its high values for sustainable forestry and carbon management. The WCC generates independently verified carbon units, backed by the Government and experts within forestry and the carbon market. Where possible we try to ensure that the tree planting we offer via our partners are part of the WCC. You will see which ones are when you click on the pin.

By participating in our tree planting program, which adheres to WCC verified projects, you have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of marketable carbon units. These units will be duly registered in your name on the industry register and subsequently retired, signifying their successful fulfilment of their intended purpose. The retirement record will include your name and the specific carbon volume covered by the respective carbon unit.

Rest assured that your involvement will leave a tangible and positive impact on carbon sequestration efforts while promoting responsible environmental stewardship.

Higher Penderleath

Higher Penderleath is just a few miles away from St Ives in west Cornwall. It’s near the ruins of a Cornish tin mine, with views cross the north Cornish coast. A wide variety of native, British trees are being planted throughout the area to improve its biodiversity. The trees provide food and nectar sources for birds, insects and other animals and will create new wildlife habitats and corridors.

Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve

Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve overlooks St Ives. It is a 40 acres public open space around Knill’s Monument. You can visit the woods – a mature woodland with mainly Beech and Oak trees; explore the heathland where plants have emerged in a patchwork of heathers, gorse, bracken, grasses, mosses and lichens; and discover areas planted with native young trees where wildlife and flowers are thriving too. Since 2012 1375 new native tree species have been planted.
