Supporting wildlife and nature is a key part of our mission at EJS, so this year we set ourselves the goal of reaching a total of 3,000 trees for wildlife habitat in partnership with World Land Trust and their Plant a Tree programme. We were able to surpass this target in August 2022 thanks to your purchases of our WLT collection, and increased the goal to 5,000 which we are very close to, finishing 2022 on a total of 4,464 planted overall.
World Land Trust work with local NGO partners around the world to save, protect and restore critically threatened habitats and species for the future. Their Plant a Tree programme helps reforest wildlife habitat, helping to safeguard biodiversity and the climate for future generations. The cost to plant a tree is £5 GBP, and this includes the sapling, land preparation and planting, as well as 3-4 years of maintenance and monitoring to ensure the tree can survive on its own.
Habitat loss is the greatest threat to wildlife worldwide, so this programme has a direct impact on threatened species. So far in their mission, World Land Trust have planted 2,631,233 trees, and protected 2,640,020 acres of land.
