From humble beginnings six years ago, planting trees for private estates and commercial forestry projects, we have now planted just short of 8 million trees here in the UK. Our approach to planting trees is based on ecologically friendly methods, looking at individual sites, surveying the land to decide what should naturally be growing there, and implementing the planting programme with native trees.
We won’t just be filling every square inch with trees, instead we will be creating more natural, diverse landscapes, with trees, shrubs and wildflowers. We will also be installing bat boxes and bird boxes, we will be creating wildflower meadow patches, digging ponds, planting aquatic marginal plants, building hibernacula (insect & reptile homes) and creating complete ecosystem habitats.
Founder and Director
Captain Nick is the visionary behind Tomorrow’s Forests. He’s done it all. From tree-planting in Canada fighting off bears, to barking out orders as site foreman. This man knows trees. With a mission to make the UK green again, Nick set up Tomorrow’s Forests, an industry leader in commercial reforestation, utilising the latest cutting-edge technology (watch your back Elon!). Six years down the line, TF has grown from 90,000 trees a year, to over 2 million, with 8 million trees now planted in the UK. Nick believes in creating full dynamic ecosystems, not just forests, and is always pushing the company to new heights. Even if it means putting his aspiring DJ career on hold.
Founder and Director
Just a small-town girl, living in a lonely world...Not quite, but Liz was born and raised in a small northern town in Quebec, Canada, where she spent her summers doing what most young Canadians do, she planted trees. It’s a rite of passage in Canada, plant trees in the summer, snowboard in the winter. After moving to the UK, Liz re-educated herself on the different tree-planting methods, and with hard work, dedication, and the sheer willingness to plant more trees than Nick, she became an absolute boss at tree-planting. She now ensures TF operations run smoothly at all times and is the backbone of the company.
