Take Part in National Tree Week 2018!

As the UK’s largest tree festivity, National Tree Week 2018 will be taking place from 24th November – 2nd December to launch the start of the winter tree planting season. With events, fun days out and volunteering opportunities taking place up and down the country, we encourage you to help preserve the future of our woodlands by getting your green fingers dirty!

What is National Tree Week?

Since it was first established in 1975, National Tree Week has occurred annually as a way of celebrating the beauty and functionality of trees throughout the UK. It encourages local communities, schools and volunteers to become involved with the initiative and plant trees across the country, as well as checking that our wooded areas are kept in good health.

Why is National Tree Week important?

Trees provide animals, birds and insects with food and shelter, making them a necessity for the continual growth of our country’s biodiversity. However, it’s no secret that deforestation has become a significant problem across the globe, with the removal of entire woodland areas threatening extinction of some of the most endangered animals.

Raising awareness of the important role trees play in protecting our environment and the creatures living within it is imperative, as it inspires the general public to get involved and help make a difference.

National Tree Week does exactly that – it gives volunteers the chance to make a positive change by organising tree-themed events and encouraging as many people as possible to get to the root of the problem and start planting! Simply find out what your local authorities and communities are doing to take part in National Tree Week and see how you can help – it couldn’t be easier.

How do I protect my trees?

National Tree Week isn’t just about planting new trees – it’s about caring for the ones we already have, too. Free tree packs are available to help target tree diseases and pests, so that you can keep your foliage thriving.

As this awareness week marks the start of winter tree planting season, it’s also the prime time to prune fruit trees, as covered in one of our previous blog posts. As discussed here, when carried out every 2-3 years, professional pruning of fruit trees:

  • encourages growth
  • boosts fruit production
  • protects against tree-related diseases
  • eliminates dangerous branches
  • improves the look of your garden

Whilst it’s important to plant new trees, we must also make sure existing green areas are properly looked after so they remain healthy, productive and flourishing.

Don’t miss National Tree Week!

With only a matter of weeks before National Tree Week starts, there’s no better time to start planning than now. From donating and organising events to volunteering with family and friends, there are a plethora of ways to get involved – when it comes to tree maintenance or pruning, our highly experienced tree surgeons at Artemis are always on hand to help. Simply contact us today to find out more about any of our services or to arrange an appointment.

Artemis took down two lime trees who's roots had damaged the garage floor and were an inch away from the foundations of the house . The trees were in a very awkward place to get to but this didn't seem to trouble this highly competent team. The team were extremely well equipped , and they worked together like a well oiled machine. We were delighted with their work, tidiness and very pleasant manner. And it was at a fair price.
