Plant a tree
and support local charities

Trees for Good Causes is a Community Interest Company (CIC) offering tree planting to individuals and businesses. We can help in offsetting your carbon footprint or offer you eco-conscious gifting.

The initiative also supports local charities.

Why plant trees with TFGC?

Trees planted locally in the South West


All our trees are planted in the UK, in North Devon. We secured access to private lands to ensure we could plant enough trees for this scheme.

We would like to plant more trees in other locations in the UK, so if you have access to land that trees can get planted on- please do get in touch!

Appropriate care ensuring tree longevity


All of our trees will be planted with animal protection and supported with a bamboo cane to protect them from weather damage. This is done to maximise the survivability of our trees and increase the benefit to the environment.

Did you know that the spiral guards used to protect our trees help create a microclimate to boost the growth of our trees? They do this by increasing the temperature around the tree slightly, protecting from weed growth competition and can direct water directly down to the root system from rain and condensation.

Only £5 per tree


You can buy a tree for only £5! You can choose how many trees you would like to plant and how often. The donation can be a one-off or a regular monthly donation.

Want to offset some of your carbon footprints? As a guide, the average person in the UK produces around 10 tons of CO2 a year. To offset at least 10% of your annual carbon emissions, you would need to plant 50 trees. You can start from just one tree or set yourself a target to offset at least 10% of your annual carbon footprint, or even more if you would like to make a bigger impact. Start from, for example, offsetting your plane journey!

With TFGC you can also gift the tree - for birthdays, anniversaries or in memory of someone. Contact us, and we will provide a certification for your gift donation!

Supporting local charities


But why just plant trees? We would like to get local people involved and help the local community. Have a huge feel-good factor of not only giving to a charity but helping fight climate change at the same time!
We're extremely excited to announce that our charity of the year in 2022, is North Devon Hospice and all our profits will be donated to this charity!

''We used TFGC’s tree planting to encourage customer survey returns and got an amazing response. People said how nice it was to use tree planting to thank them for their time.”

This little pot represents the kindness from strangers. We received an email from an amazing couple who heard about our Trees For Good Causes campaign. They wanted to know how they could help. They had collected acorns from their oak tree and potted them up, promptly forgot about them and came back to this. They very kindly donated this pot to our cause. Small acts like this warm your heart.

Thank you Mr and Mrs P.

Some of our Business Supporters

Gareth Cornell, Head of Business at Marshall Volkswagen Barnstaple: ''By donating the in-house cost of our complimentary wash and vacuum to plant trees locally and at the same time, donate to North Devon Hospice, is a very simple way to benefit both the environment and our local community too. It's a small action that can add up to a big difference."
''We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Trees for Good Causes in our centenary year. We understand our responsibility to the planet and the need for us all to work together to tackle the climate crisis. Our aim is to plant 100 trees throughout 2022 and look forward to seeing those flourish.''- said Stuart Howell, Hartnell Taylor Cook Managing Partner.
