YFCs to plant 9,000 trees ‘to help in the fight against climate change’

More than 9,000 trees will be planted by Young Farmers in the next two months ‘to help in the fight against climate change’.

 

The hope is to plant one sapling tree per member, with 60 Young Farmers’ Clubs (YFCs) across England and Wales being supplied the trees by The Woodland Trust.

 

The project is part of the national YFC initiative #ProtectYourFuture to make a positive contribution to the environment for the next generation.

 

Local projects will also be supported, such as a learning disability centre, the landscaping of new grounds at a local football club, community farms and improving habitats along a river.

Katie Hall, chairwoman of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (NFYFC), said: “This year YFCs have been focusing on ways to improve the environment through our Protect Your Future campaign and it is great to see so many of our members making a positive impact on their local environment.

“The trees are a real symbol of hope for the next generation.”

 

Ms Hall will be planting 735 sapling trees in Gloucestershire on Saturday (November 16) with local YFC members, Gloucestershire NFU and Gloucester City Council.

 

The Woodland Trust director of woodland outreach John Tucker said: “[Trees] play a pivotal role in the fight against climate change, cleaning our air, storing carbon and producing oxygen, and that is why we need them like never before.

 

“We hope as many people as possible will follow the example of the Young Farmers up and down the country, plant trees and dig in for all our futures.”
