WE ARE THE UNITED BANK OF CARBON

One of the simplest and most reliable methods of responding to climate change is planting trees. This locks up carbon, improves air quality, and improves the biodiversity value of the landscape. We work in partnership with academic institutions to support research into the benefits of tree planting. This research ranges from conversion of conifer plantations to mixed native woods in Cumbria, the value of street trees to the local economy, and the area of forest that will be needed to achieve organisations’ climate goals.

We are currently supporting PhD students and research activity at the University of Leeds and the University of York.
