Tree Time was established by the Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust to seek donations from individuals, business and community groups in the region by offering a range of easily digestible funding packages with specific outcomes.
Tree Time will work to plant large, prominent trees in streets and parks, to plant replacement landmark trees before the old ones die, as well as trees in other public places and urban woodlands, new and existing.
Trees provide a number of benefits including an improved appearance, increased biodiversity as well as helping to mitigate against climate change. Trees are estimated to be worth a great deal to the local economy but need to be cared for future generations.
As part of their Global Volunteer Days, Morningstar rescued a young orchard by clearing nettles and weeds which had taken over. You can see the huge difference they made - the young trees now have the space to grow and thrive! @MorningstarInc #corporatevolunteering #giveback pic.twitter.com/pLoEE77kWg
