Encouraging garden centre tree sales during National Tree Week

by | Nov 28, 2019 | News | 0 comments

As part of this week’s National Tree Week activities (23 November – 1 December), the HTA has partnered with The Tree Council and the Daily Mail to use the National Garden Gift Voucher scheme to encourage tree sales through HTA member businesses.

National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season.

Trees are so important to our environment – they give us oxygen, store carbon, improve air quality, conserve water, preserve soil, support wildlife and are a key solution to climate change. They also make our communities more beautiful and improve our wellbeing.

As part of the Daily Mail’s ‘Be a Tree Angel’ campaign, readers can redeem Nectar points for a £5 National Garden Gift Voucher to put towards the purchase of a tree to plant in their garden.

HTA President Boyd Douglas-Davies, comments:

“We all know the benefits of planting more trees – in the garden and the wider landscape. They have such an important role to play in helping to mitigate the impact of climate change, enhancing communities and providing homes for wildlife. We can help encourage tree sales through garden centres by providing the nation’s gardeners with the best advice on the types of trees suitable for their outdoor space. For tomorrow, plant today!”
