We’re really proud to announce that, from the 1st of July, we started planting trees via Treeapp for every new case at Harold Stock and Co. solicitors.
As around 70% of carbon emissions worldwide come from businesses, we believe we should be doing our bit to help combat climate change. So, we will be planting a new tree for every client we take on and can’t wait to start making a positive impact.
Why we chose Treeapp
We’ve chosen Treeapp because they plant the right trees in the right places. Native, non-invasive species on land that is owned by the community for the next 15 years, at least. The care Treeapp takes in choosing the right areas means the land won’t be taken over and used for something else before the trees have matured, and the local community won’t be negatively impacted.
Treeapp also has both afforestation and reforestation efforts. This means they plant trees in areas where there weren’t any before, as well as in areas where deforestation is happening. They also work closely with farmers and experts to ensure their impact is maximised.
One of the things that stands out about Treeapp is they don’t just ‘throw a seed into the ground and just forget about it’ (their words). Instead, they monitor and care for the trees after they’ve been planted. This means we feel confident our efforts will be maximised.
Afforestation is planting trees in a new place where there weren’t any before, creating a forest. Reforestation is planting trees in places where the number of trees has been declining.
