Trees For Nidderdale (Carbon Balance)
Looking after our environment
CARBON EMISSIONS BALANCE SCHEME
DO YOU WANT TO BALANCE YOUR CARBON EMISSIONS?
TRY TO BE CARBON NEUTRAL?
BALANCE YOUR CAR EMISSIONS?
BALANCE YOUR HOLIDAY EMISSIONS?
There are many schemes for balancing emissions some of which are based on projects abroad which you cannot necessarily monitor to check their effectiveness or even their very existence.
A public meeting about trees was arranged by Zero Carbon Harrogate at which our tree planting scheme was discussed and promoted - go to www.zerocarbonharrogate.org.uk/woodlands-for-life for further information
NIDDERDALE IN NORTH YORKSHIRE NEEDS TREES
It has only 8% tree coverage as against 13% 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 30,000 TREES, OF WHICH JUST OVER 20,000 HAVE BEEN PLANTED TO DATE. WILL YOU HELP TOWARD BUYING THE OTHER 10,000 TO ACHIEVE OUR TARGET AND HELP BALANCE YOUR OWN CARBON EMISSIONS?
A DONATION OF £3 WILL BUY ONE TREE
£12 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
