UK: Wyevale Nurseries supplies 660 trees for sacred spaces
Wyevale Nurseries has been picked by The Conservation Foundation to provide the trees to be planted in London church yards later on in the year.
Andy Congera, Amenity & Landscape Sales Manager at Wyevale Nurseries, said: “We are so pleased to be supporting this initiative. We will be providing 12 different species to the project, which is also supported by the Church of England and the Mayor of London.
“The initiative is for churches in a London borough, and in the diocese of Southwark, London, Chelmsford or Rochester. Churches can help to green the capital. The trees will improve air quality and the health of London’s population and the environment, as well as supporting bees by providing pollen, nectar or resin.
“There are 660 free trees up for grabs so enough for every church in London to plant. The trees can be planted in a churchyard or they can be donated to a school, community group or other faith organisation.”

The free trees will be available between late October and late November 2017 as part of The Conservation Foundation’s Trees for Sacred Spaces project.
There are 12 different species available, which include hawthorn, bird cherry, wild cherry, whitebeam, crab apple, rowan, lime, tulip tree, Italian cypress, black mulberry, strawberry tree and yew.
David Shreeve, Director of The Conservation Foundation, said: “A fifth of the capital is already covered by trees but some parts of London are short of greenery. Churches can play an important role in helping to make their area look and feel better by working with their communities to plant trees. All the trees available will benefit London’s landscape and atmosphere as well as support the capital’s pollinators.”
People are able to select the species they want to plant and request any number of trees – availability permitting.
To take part in the project and receive free bee-friendly trees, you can complete a short registration form via www.conservationfoundation.co.uk/trees/ before July 31, 2017.
Before registering people are advised to make sure they have an appropriated planting site. Guidance to help people find a suitable site is available via the website. There is also more information on the 12 tree species available.
