u3a - u3a woodland campaign

u3a members from across the UK have shown their commitment to protecting wildlife and the environment for future generations by contributing 8,200 trees planted in the u3a woodland in just 6 months.

This smashed through the original target of planting 5,000 trees by March 2022.

And this huge contribution doesn’t stop now – as u3a members and others can keep contributing – helping us plan ahead for the next planting season which starts in November. The campaign is now aiming to reach 10,000 trees by the end of 2022.

Trustee and u3a member Neil Stevenson who has been leading the campaign said, “Our woodland campaign has shown the power of the movement’s combined voice - coming together to protect the environment and climate for future generations.

“The energy and enthusiasm of members is inspiring - please keep contributing and help us reach our new target of 10,000 trees planted by the end of this year”
