The Tree Charter is a new beginning, and strives to be a benchmark for policy, business practice and individual action, ensuring that everyone in society knows what’s needed to safeguard the important relationship that trees have with people and wildlife.
Although it won’t be adopted into law as a whole, the Tree Charter will exist in the public domain with a huge mandate from the vast number of organisations who contributed to it, and the thousands of people across the UK who have signed it.
The Tree Council’s mission is to make trees matter to everyone so that more trees are planted, all trees get better care, and people are inspired to take effective action. The Tree Charter will be a powerful tool in campaigning, and a useful and easy way for businesses, institutions, communities and individuals to make decisions that are good for trees and people. As more organisations, institutions and Local Authorities adopt The Charter into their strategies and policies, there will be a stronger voice for trees themselves..
