Groves Nurseries has teamed up with Bridport Tree Planting Group to get more trees in West Dorset.

Tree planting has the potential to make a huge difference in the fight to combat climate change.
Forests can lock up carbon for thousands of years. At the same time, it provides essential habitat for thousands of species.
Government targets include planting 1.5 million trees by 2050.
Bridport Tree Planting Group was established this year. It’s in association with Friends of the Earth to help and encourage people to plant more trees in Bridport.
Joe Hackett, one of the founding members approached the Manager of Groves Nurseries, Charlie Groves, to see if they could work together.
Off the back of this Groves Nurseries are launching their “Buy One Get One Tree” scheme for 2020. For every tree that Groves sell during 2020 they will donate another tree to the BTPG.
Charlie Groves said “Tree planting is one of the simplest ways to fight climate change. We’re delighted to be working with Joe and the Bridport Tree Group to plant more trees across Dorset.
“Whether you have a large garden, a small patio or an allotment you can usually find space for a tree, even if its in a container.”
The scheme will be launched at the BTPG Tree Planting Day on Saturday 14th of March at the United Church, Bridport.
This event starts at 1:30 and will include demonstrations on tree planting from Groves Nurseries head plantsman Steve Ward. The day will be concluded by a tree planting session at Askers Meadow at 3pm.
