Trees For Nidderdale (Carbon Offset)
CARBON EMISSIONS OFFSET SCHEME
DO YOU WANT TO OFFSET YOUR CARBON EMISSIONS?
BECOME CARBON NEUTRAL?
OFFSET YOUR CAR EMISSIONS?
OFFSET YOUR HOLIDAY EMISSIONS?
There are many schemes for offsetting emissions, some of which are based on projects abroad but which you cannot see or do not know whether they are effective or that the project has even been carried out.
Thursday 17th October
A public meeting about trees has been arranged by Zero Carbon Harrogate at which our tree planting scheme will be discussed and promoted - go to https://www.zerocarbonharrogate.org.uk/woodlands-for-life for further information
NIDDERDALE IN NORTH YORKSHIRE NEEDS TREES
It has only 5% tree coverage as against 8% nationally
Climate change and changing farming practices are key issues affecting their landscape. Trees are needed to reduce the growth of bracken and to provide a habitat for wildlife.
OUR AIM IS TO PLANT 25,000 TREES, OF WHICH JUST OVER 15,000 HAVE BEEN PLANTED TO DATE. WILL YOU HELP TOWARD BUYING THE OTHER 10,000 TO ACHIEVE OUR TARGET AND OFFSET YOUR OWN CARBON EMISSIONS?
A DONATION OF £2.50 WILL BUY ONE TREE
£10 WITH GIFT AID BUYS FIVE TREES
(Cost of a ‘Whip’ Tree, plus stake and protective sleeve)
The scheme is organised by the Rotary Club of Harrogate in co-operation with the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and supported by the Sustainability Trust
