"He who plants a tree, plants a hope" Lucy Larcom

In a country where forestry coverage now stands at a mere 8.5% compared to at least one-quarter of the surface area in Germany, France and the USA, there is understandably considerable concern over the widespread deforestation of the British Isles.

To this end, we are delighted to participate in a tree-planting scheme, a private initiative set up by conservationists Ann and Derek Ashley who, to date, have planted over 6,000 saplings. We commission them to plant and personally tend to young hardwood trees in a stunning area of protected land in Herefordshire. This we arrange, on behalf of, but at no cost to each of our clients for every piece of furniture we make and provide a personal certificate of sustainability confirming the date of planting and species of tree.
