The four hundred trees will be planted in partnership with the non-profit community interest organisation Trees for Good Causes (TFGC). Each donation of £5 will plant one tree and contribute £2 to TFGC’s chosen charity, which this year is The North Devon Hospice.
Over the next three issues of Yours magazine, readers will be encouraged to donate and will find details of how to get involved. Readers will also have a 'Tree-o-meter' to update them on how many trees have been bought so far!
The Yours forest will be planted in November at the start of the planting season, at a site in Devon and featured in the magazine. The trees will be planted with animal protection and supported with a bamboo cane to protect them from the weather.
Joanna Benbow, Director and Co-Founder, TFGC added: “We're incredibly pleased to work with Yours readers on the Yours Forest initiative. Protecting the environment along with the extra focus on supporting local causes and charities is something that has always been close to my heart. Together, we're making a difference for future generations.”
