Conservation Volunteers ‘I Dig Trees’ Celebrates 500,000 Trees Planted

Message from Conservation Volunteers:
I Dig Trees Celebrates 500,000 Trees Planted
The Conservation Volunteers are delighted to announce since 2015 the I Dig Tree programme has successfully planted a whopping half a million trees. This is such great news especially at the beginning of National Tree Planting week.

I Dig Trees is designed to make a real difference where you live. Reducing CO2, improving green spaces and encouraging wildlife to set up home. Every year, we join thousands of volunteers and community groups, to get our hands dirty and breathe fresh, new life into your cities, parks and schools.

Half a million is a great number but we’ve still got plenty of free trees packs remaining and anyone can register their community group to receive one of the 2,700 free community tree planting packs (each containing 50 trees), through the My Community Digs Trees initiative on the TCV website. Alternatively, you can volunteer to take part in a local tree planting activity.

TCV created I Dig Trees with OVO Energy as a feature of its 100% renewable Greener Energy Plan, to deliver an additional benefit to the environment. All trees planted are native species and all will be planted in the UK, directly impacting our local communities.

Visit us on twitter @TCVTweets / #IDigTrees to see how we’ve been doing and join us in reaching 1 million!
