Trees for Good Causes CIC is a tree-planting scheme that supports local charities

Community tree planting that helps absorb carbon footprint and makes a positive impact locally

Plant trees in your local community for a better tomorrow

Trees for Good Causes CIC aims to help individuals and businesses plant trees

But that’s not all; this scheme also supports local charities. During our pilot project in 2021, we donated all profits to Children’s Hospice South West and North Devon Hospice.

TFGC become CIC in January 2022. Now each year we will be choosing one charity that will benefit from tree donations. This year our chosen charity is North Devon Hospice. 


Our Vision

Our vision is to support local communities in tree planting and work with local charities to give something back. Together, we’re making a difference for future generations. 

Benefits of tree planting

Trees help to fight the climate change, prevent flooding & erosion, they purify the air, improve soil quality, lower the air temperature, help sustain wildlife and help to protect biodiversity! Now, thanks to TFGC also help to support charities.

Caring about the Trees

All of our trees are 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 and maximise CO2 absorption.  

TFGC Founder & Director

Edward Prouse

I have always had a passion for sustainability. In 2011, I completed a National Award in Horticulture to distinction standard at Bicton College. In 2018, I completed my Master of Horticulture degree with RHS Wisely. I was honoured to be part of the team that built the silver-award-winning RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden, Laced with Hope for Supershoes. Since 2020, I run my landscaping business Birch Meadow Landscaping Ltd specialising in high-end projects.

I have a keen interest in climate change. In my day-to-day work, I try to use many low carbon materials and use recycled materials where possible. 

You can be sure tree planted for TFGC will be well-looked after to ensure trees longevity and long-term carbon absorption.

But why just plant trees?

We would like to get local people involved and can help the local community. This is where Trees for Good Causes was born. People can have a huge feel-good factor of not only giving to charity but help fight climate change at the same time.

Joanna Benbow

I’m a Chartered Marketer passionate about sustainability and well-being. I graduated with a double Masters Degree in Global Business Management and Marketing. Alongside the business focus on growth, strategy, and financial stability, my passion leads me to work with ethical businesses that make a positive impact locally and environmentally.

I love working with like-minded businesses, and I’m also involved in promoting sustainability & green initiatives at a local level, including TFGC!  

We all know that planting trees is essential (although not the only answer!) for fighting climate change. There might never be enough trees to offset our carbon footprints, so we need to take appropriate steps to reduce them too. Planting trees has many benefits, apart from CO2 absorption, it protects biodiversity, and even prevents flooding and erosion. Therefore, it means a lot to me to be involved in creating a tree planting scheme that is very local to us. This unique scheme can helps local communities to offset carbon footprint and allows us all to make a positive local impact with the additional benefit of supporting fantastic local charities. I’m thrilled to be part of it!
