Created by Laurence Parkin, this terrific "infographic" encapsulates our campaign for more trees in the Dales, but not more plastic! First published in the 150th anniversary edition of the Yorkshire Dales Review, the illustration can be downloaded (below) for sharing. The key messages are relevant to planting anywhere, not just in the Dales. With more treeplanting nationally mooted as part of the coronavirus pandemic "green recovery" we hope alternatives ways of planting trees can be explored, avoiding the use of single use plastic where possible.
As part of our campaign to reduce the use of single use plastic as tree planting guards, we organised a demonstration day at a privately owned Dales woodland in March 2020 (before lockdown due to coronavirus). A small but effective group of volunteers collected hundreds of redundant tree guards for onwards recycling. Read more about the day, with more photos, in the short report by Trustee Mark Corner, downloadable below.

"it's more beautiful than you realise; the people are open and friendly and have time for you; your phone might not work which is a positive as you'll have more time - slow down and enjoy the silence".
