Jersey Trees for Life is the only charity dedicated to planting and protecting trees on the island.
We promote the planting, conservation and protection of trees in Jersey as well as an appreciation of trees for their ecological and social importance.
In 1991 we planted 18 different species of alder along the valley floor at Seven Oaks in St Brelade, forming a collection unique within the British Isles. The project was in part a response to the impact of Dutch elm disease, with the additional aim of identifying which species are best suited to our climate and soil.
This beautiful memorial woodland in St Helier was first planted in 2004, thanks to the generosity of Enid Gautier. Enid wanted to promote tree planting while creating a community area for the nearby residents, in memory of her mother, Adelina.
Val de la Mare Arboretum was created by the Moores family in 1975 in memory of their son, Nigel. The States of Jersey carefully sourced and planted seeds from around the world, creating an incredible arboretum with 12 geographical and genus-based collections comprising diverse species such as eucalyptus, giant redwood, Korean birch, Japanese cedar and many others.
Our Hedgerow Campaign has been running since 2007, reducing soil erosion and wind damage around agricultural fields, creating habitat for wildlife and contributing to increased biodiversity.
