Sponsors

We are most grateful to the following companies and organisations who are supporting our work to conserve and plant trees in Plymouth.  

2018

Calor Gas
The company’s ‘Start from the Heart’ initiative saw 18 staff engaged in conservation work in Central Park over two days.  They provided vital care to young trees in the Family Tree Field by weeding and watering them in the hot dry weather.  Some trees would have died without this help.  The team also re-made the main entrance to the field and repaired a section of collapsed hedge bank under professional supervision.  The area looks much smarter as a result!

Discounted use of space in Mansbridge and Balment’s offices provides an essential base where partnership volunteers can meet and work on tree projects and aftercare.

 

Eco Land Management (ELM)
For giving us a day of their time to lead an additional corporate volunteering day at the Family Tree Field. It meant we could work with another corporate and do much more than expected!

  • Running three corporate volunteering days led by conservation instructors to include caring for young trees, wildflower planting, scything, labelling trees and restoring hedgerows.
  • Buying tools and materials.

Plymouth Tree Partnership took part in the M&S “Spark Something Good” initiative.  Staff from the Plymouth store planted trees and crocuses in Central Park and funding was provided for materials and professional support.  It was a
great day with a great deal being achieved – take a look!
