Trees Are The Key

Awareness Week

15-21 March 2021

About Trees Are The Key Awareness Week

For more than a year, people the world over have endured unfathomable loss, sadness and pain. We know that when we head for the trees, they have the power to help us all in a variety of ways. Studies continue to provide evidence that trees have an incredible ability to boost our mental health and our physical wellbeing.
During the inaugural Trees Are The Key Awareness Week, we’re going to unlock the science and the secrets behind how our local parks, woodlands and forests can lift our disposition, make us feel better, chill us out, keep us more focused and get our mind, body and spirit back on track.

Bookmark the 15th to the 21st March in your diary and join us for 7 days of suggested activities that everyone can enjoy, even those of us who are unable to visit trees in person.

Be a #TreeHero - Do a Fundraiser

If you’re planning on running a fundraiser for us during our Week, we’d love to hear from you!

We can create a bespoke web page to help you, that way every single penny (minus bank charges of course) will come straight to us and will support our work.

Any amount raised will enable us to continue to mitigate climate chaos through tree planting in the topics.

Thank you!

Trees Are The Key Awareness Week is an initiative from UK Registered Charity, The Word Forest Organisation. They are based in Lyme Regis, Dorset and they plant trees, build schools, facilitate education and support women’s empowerment in rural Kenya. Aside from the building, they do much the same in the UK but on a smaller scale.

See their positive impact in action in their documentary #TreesAreTheKey narrated by Kate Winslet.
