As part of National Tree Week (which ends today, Sunday 1 December), the HTA partnered with The Tree Council and the Daily Mail to use the National Garden Gift Voucher scheme to encourage tree sales.
National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season. The campaign encourages people plant more trees and care for the ones that we already have.
Trees give us oxygen, store carbon, improve air quality, conserve water, preserve soil, support wildlife and are a key solution to climate change. They also make communities more beautiful and improve our wellbeing.
As part of the Daily Mail’s ‘Be a Tree Angel’ campaign, readers can redeem Nectar points for a £5 National Garden Gift Voucher to put towards the purchase of a tree to plant in their garden.
Other initiatives during the week included the airing of Chris Packham’s ‘Plant a Tree to Save the World’ on Channel 5 last Thursday.
HTA President Boyd Douglas-Davies, said: “We can help encourage tree sales through garden centres by providing the nation’s gardeners with the best advice on the types of trees suitable for their outdoor space. For tomorrow, plant today!”
