National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration. Each year, the country’s conservation sector, volunteer groups and nature lovers come together to plant thousands of trees to mark the start of the annual tree planting season. This event takes place from 26th November – 4th December 2022.
The winter planting season is upon us so it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and get planting. Trees and hedgerows are some of the most powerful tools we have in the fight against climate change. And the good news is that we can all make a difference by planting a tree! Whether you plant in a pot on your doorstep, a hedge in your garden or organise a community event at a local park, every tree will help us grow a greener future together.
Trees are heroes of nature. They sustain wildlife, create oxygen, purify our air and are absolutely beautiful. National Tree Week is the perfect time to celebrate our trees and remind everyone about all they do. After all, learning more about all the incredible things trees do is an important first step on our journey to a brighter future. So, any way you can, whether it’s sharing the campaign on social media, an email to colleagues, or just talking to friends, let’s celebrate our trees!
As part of our partnership with Ecologi, we pledge to plant 1 tree for every child that enrols in one of our nurseries. In addition to this, we also pledge to plant a tree for all current employees and for every new colleague that joins us. In October we planted 175 trees, with Ecologi; this brings our total up to 1,790 trees. Take a look at our Ecologi profile here.
We are one of the most eco-sustainable day nursery families in the UK and we work hard to be sustainable in our every day practice. We are always looking for new ways to save the planet and influence the future generation to do the same. Engaging with Ecologi is a great opportunity to give back to the children, families and employees who are part of our Tops family and to continue our mission of an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible world for all.Managing Director, Cheryl Hadland
