JERSEY TREE FUND

In partnership with National Trust for Jersey, we have launched a fund dedicated to the restoration and management of Jersey’s trees, hedgerows and woodlands following the damage caused by Storm Ciarán.

The fund’s aim is to replace storm-damaged trees on land that delivers public amenity and enjoyment, based on a comprehensive plan to ensure the right trees are planted in the right places across the island. All funding will cover the cost of trees, preparation and planting, plus three years of maintenance which will entail formative pruning of standard trees and biannual shaping of hedgerows.

As the only Jersey charity dedicated to trees, we are ideally placed to lead this initiative in partnership with National Trust for Jersey, which shares and supports our passion for caring for the island’s natural environment.

We are currently working with Government of Jersey to agree planting locations, one of which will be the Railway Walk. We will carry out the planting throughout winter 2024-25.

Help us by donating today

Three default tiers of donation are available:

  • £20 for a two to three year old tree planted within a hedgerow
  • £150 for a standard tree planted in a publicly accessible area
  • £1,000 for a large tree planted in a prominent public location

All donations will include a certificate identifying the location of your tree.
