About Borders Forest Trust
Borders Forest Trust is a charitable organisation working to restore the rich tapestry of native woodlands and wild places in the south of Scotland.
Formed in 1996, the Trust was established to enable the development of a range of integrated environmental, social and economic projects that would contribute towards the restoration of the area’s native woodland heritage.
Our Plant A Tree Scheme
In the winter of 2019/2020 we started our Plant A Tree scheme. For every tonne of briquettes we sell, we plant one native tree in the UK. Whether you buy one pack or one palet, every purchase counts towards our total. We do this in partnership with Borders Forest Trust, who plant areas of native woodland in the Scottish Borders.
In 2020, Borders Forest Trust planted 2,107 trees purchased by us, at a total cost of £5,267.50. These trees have been planted at the Talla and Gameshope site.
Two pounds fifty pence per tree planted is fabulous value for enhancing the environment. We are delighted to work with the Borders Forest Trust on this planting programme and look forward to playing our part in re-wilding the Borders hills again in 2021.
