Trees Are The Key

Awareness Week

21-27 March 2022

2022 Theme: So What Do Trees Really Do For Us?

We believe that trees are the key to solving so many of the world’s problems, not just climate chaos. They are crucial ingredients for a healthy environment and every living, breathing inhabitant of our planet.

Trees are the ultimate gift (from Mother Nature) that keep on giving. They clean the air that we all breathe, manufacture precious oxygen, allow biodiversity to flourish, and give habitat for wildlife. They also help to maintain high levels of organic matter for the soil, and via their roots systems help to improve the soil’s ability to absorb and retain water.

As if that’s not enough, the crops from different types of trees worldwide provide a range of commodities: fruits, nuts and other foodstuffs, medicine, building materials and more.
Bookmark this page, and join us on our social channels as we find out just what trees really do for us. Starting on the International Day of the Forests, Monday 21st March, we will be sharing a wealth of articles, engaging interviews with climate scientists, and a free Friday evening screening of our documentary #TreesAreTheKey, narrated by Kate Winslet on 25th March. There will also be free online courses from our Educational Learning Platform, and a series of free lessons and activities aimed at KS2 Primary School pupils (ages 7-11). Plus a series of nature based poems and other events.
