Capital joins National Forest’s ambitious campaign to reach 9 million trees

On Friday 15th November, Capital visited the National Forest in Leicestershire and planted a tree with a very special story, to help the National Forest Company reach a big number – their 9 millionth tree planted in the Forest so far. The ambitious campaign, marks a significant milestone in the creation of the National Forest – the planting of the 9 millionth tree is expected to take place during this tree planting season. Capital is a partner of the National Forest Company, and was honoured to receive an invitation to dedicate a tree and share the story behind its continued support.

Rachel, Marketing Manager from Capital said, “We are really excited to be supporting the National Forest through our Capital Eco Stove range. Improving our carbon footprint is a key part of our business philosophy and a vital part of that is our partnership with the National Forest.”

From tree houses to The Hundred Acre Wood, trees are deep rooted in our imaginations, and every tree dedicated in the National Forest has a story to tell. The National Forest is inviting individuals and organisations to dedicate their own tree and contribute to a forest full of stories.

David Bourque from the National Forest said, “Through our campaign, we want to bring the forest to life with people’s individual stories. Whether this is how businesses like Capital have helped us change the shape of the landscape or how people have commemorated a special occasion by planting a tree that will last a lifetime (or two). Every story becomes part of the past, present and future of the National Forest.”

“Corporate partnerships are making an invaluable contribution and helping us reach our 9 millionth tree planted since we started creating the Forest in 1991. The support of businesses has a huge impact on our work and helps us to continue to drive change in our transforming landscape.”
