With special thanks to our charity partner
The Nature of Work Festival are delighted to have appointed Trees for Cities as its charity partner, getting fully behind their urban trees project, given the real benefits that trees bring to our cities, our health, and our individual and collective well-being.
It should go without saying that the effects of climate change are already being felt. We’re experiencing warmer, wetter winters, and hotter, drier summers, creating higher temperatures in our cities. Climate change has caused an increase in pests and disease, which had never previously affected the UK. The impact has been an unprecedented threat to some iconic tree species, including ash, horse chestnut and oak.
Trees for Cities are the only UK charity working at a national and international scale that, by virtue of planting thousands of urban trees worldwide each year, is committed to building resilience against threats facing the natural environment. Planting a range of tree species enhances structural and functional diversity in woodlands and on city streets, as well as building resistance to pests and disease.
If you wish to make a donation towards Trees for Cities' charitable causes, you will be making a substantial positive difference to London's greenery and air quality.
Just £6 donated to the charity will plant 1 tree in an urban woodland area in and around the capital, helping to create greener, healthier cities for generations to come.
