Squire's donates 300 silver birches to local communities
Squire’s Garden Centres is to donate 300 silver birch trees to local parks and green spaces.
It’s part of the group’s ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign in September, where they pledged to donate 5p for every plant sold towards trees to the local community.
Sarah Squire, Squire’s chairman, said: “The silver birch is a stunning native tree, which is great for the environment and for wildlife too, so I’m very pleased that we will be donating 300 of them to parks and green spaces across the south-east. We are working closely with local councils who will plant the young trees in February next year to make our community spaces even more attractive.”
Some of the places where the trees will be planted include Priory Park in Reigate, Stoke Recreation Ground in Guildford, Ifield Millpond in Crawley, Hickleys Corner in Farnham, Homewood Park in Chertsey.
