We are partnering with the Woodland Trust to support their vital work to increase native tree cover in the UK, through their Emergency Tree Fund.
The tree planting scheme provides local authorities with the support they need to create more green spaces for communities to enjoy, as well as contributing to carbon reduction by planting native trees. Through our commitment, Transparity will as a minimum target enable local authorities to plant 2,000 native UK and Ireland Sourced and Grown trees (UKISG).

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, dedicated to protecting and restoring our ancient woods and trees and planting new woodland, creating havens for wildlife and for people to enjoy.
The Woodland Trust’s work is essential to the nation’s fight against the climate and nature crises. Woods and trees remove CO2 from the atmosphere and could reduce as much as 25% of current CO2 emissions from fossil fuels by 2030. However, it’s not just about carbon, native woods and trees also help to reduce flooding and support biodiversity by providing vital habitat and food sources for native
Pip Greensmith, head of partnerships, Woodland Trust said: “Our focus at the Woodland Trust is to continue to increase our native tree canopy, creating a UK where trees and woods thrive for the benefit of climate, nature and people.

“Transparity are also a preferred Woodland Trust supplier, so it is a fantastic opportunity for us to work together to deliver this project.”
