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.
Due to the impact of Dutch Elm Disease in the 1980s, our aim was to identify which species are best suited to our climate and soil and in 1990 we planted 18 different species of alder along the valley floor at Seven Oaks in St Brelade.
This beautiful memorial woodland was first planted in 2004, thanks to the generosity of Enid Gautier. Enid wished 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. Seeds were carefully sourced from around the world and planted by the States of Jersey creating an incredible collection of over 12 different species, including Eucalyptus, Giant Redwood, Korean Birch and Japanese Cedar to name a few.
Our annual hedgerow campaign has been running since 2007, creating safe corridors and habitats for wildlife, reducing soil erosion around agricultural fields and contributing to increased biodiversity.
