fc cartons joins National Forest’s ambitious campaign to reach 9 million trees

fc cartons have supported the planting of 200 trees to help the National Forest Company reach a big number – their 9 millionth tree planted in the Forest so far.

The ambitious campaign, marks a significant milestone in the creation of the National Forest – the planting of the 9 millionth tree is expected to take place during this tree planting season.

Debra Woodyatt from fc cartons said,

“We are delighted to have had the opportunity to be involved and to have made a contribution to this significant achievement, I have thoroughly enjoyed all the tree planting events I have attended and it is hard to believe we have now been responsible for the planting of 642 trees it is really rewarding to think of the contribution this is making to our carbon neutral status and our local environment here in the East Midlands.”

From tree houses to The Hundred Acre Wood, trees are deep rooted in our imaginations, and every tree planted in the National Forest has a story to tell. The National Forest is inviting individuals and organisations to dedicate their own tree and contribute to a forest full of stories.

David Bourque from the National Forest said, “Through our campaign, we want to bring the forest to life with people’s individual stories. Whether this is how businesses like fc cartons have helped us change the shape of the landscape or how people have commemorated a special occasion by planting a tree that will last a lifetime (or two). Every story becomes part of the past, present and future of the National Forest.”

“Corporate partnerships are making an invaluable contribution and helping us reach our 9 millionth tree planted since we started creating the Forest in 1991. The support of businesses has a huge impact on our work and helps us to continue to drive change in our transforming landscape.”

Here at fc tree planting has made a significant contribution to our Carbon Neutral status and we will continue to support this great campaign and will of course continue with our other existing initiatives, whilst always looking for further opportunities both internally and externally to protect and extend our 12 year Carbon Neutral status and we are also aiming to become Climate Positive.
