Wet woodland creation: Somerset (UK)
SITE FULLY FUNDED!
We are delighted to announce that our Somerset site, Charlotte's Wood, is fully funded. Thank you to the Creating Tomorrow's Forests' Community and to all of our business partners for helping to fund this beautiful site. Keep an eye out for more details on our next site very soon.
Based on the Somerset Levels, this wet woodland has been planted with native trees, supporting a high diversity of rare insects, otters and declining bird species.
We have planted using a variation on the Miyawaki Method, which means the trees will grow ten times quicker than a normal plantation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Tomorrow’s Forests?
We only ever plant in the UK because we believe our members should be able to see for themselves the impact that they are making. In these modern times, it has never been more important to look after the land which we call home, making sure we maintain our native ecosystems for years to come.
We don't just plant trees, our mission is to create diverse woodland habitats. To do this, we look to science to guide the way. Up-to-date findings help us to ensure the highest possible amount of carbon is sequestered where possible.
We also know which species of trees will survive in different parts of the UK. Each site that we create is expertly designed in-house to make sure the trees survive and thrive, become a home for wildlife, and a place that we can enjoy.
Who plants your trees?
How can you prove my impact?
Before planting we conduct baseline surveys to look at the existing site biodiversity and then we repeat these surveys at regular intervals and share the results with you so that you can see wildlife flourishing in the restored habitat.
We also supply our members with a bespoke GPS coordinate linking them to every tree they have planted.
How will this benefit my business?
A successful and sustainable business requires year-on-year sales growth, and many businesses are now following the principles of the circular economy to achieve this. The planet has limited resources, so in order to sustain this, we must put back what we take out. By partnering with Creating Tomorrow’s Forests you can demonstrate your green credentials and be assured that you are investing in ecologically sound UK habitat creation projects.
Is Tomorrow’s Forests a charity?
What is afforestation?
The UK has the lowest level of woodland cover in Europe at just 13%, so we are committed to creating new forests to capture carbon and to increase biodiversity.
How does planting trees reduce my carbon footprint?
Every single tree counts in the fight against climate change but planting forests will reduce carbon levels even more quickly. Managing the long-term health of forests will ensure that trees continue to sequester carbon and keep it locked away. It is very difficult to measure how much carbon one person produces and how much an individual tree stores, but we know that young, densely planted forests grow ten times faster.
This means that the Tomorrow's Forests woodlands will absorb carbon quickly and site ownership and sensitive management will ensure that the carbon is stored in the long term. Creating forests also has additional benefits in terms of increasing biodiversity, reducing local temperatures and reducing flooding, so investing in one of our forests will benefit the planet and our local environment in many ways.
Why do you only plant in the UK?
By not relying on third-party planters and planting close to home, we can be more efficient, have a higher percentage of trees that grow to full maturity and cultivate our sites through the years. This means that more carbon is taken from the atmosphere in the long term, and local air quality can improve.
Which species of tree do you plant?
We commonly use English Oak (Quercus robur) as the cornerstone and then a mixture of Silver Birch (Betula pendula), Hazel (Corylus avellana), Willows and other faster growing species to get the woodland carbon sequestration happening as quickly as possible. Our planting method is a variation on the Miyawaki method, that carefully considers soil type and plants saplings at high densities to accelerate growth and carbon capture. As part of this planting method, we will plant different size trees varying from whips (60cm) to feathereds (1.2m) to standards (3m) to establish a multistorey canopy from the beginning of the project, enabling the site to kickstart itself and make it more inviting for wildlife.
In addition to planting tree species, we sow appropriate flower mixes to create ground layer vegetation. We also create additional habitat such as ponds, wildflower meadows, amphibian hibernacula and insect refuges. Our forests not only capture carbon effectively but also create valuable habitat for wildlife and a lasting legacy in this country that you can visit.
