Trees for Christmas is back for another year, helping you to have a green Christmas. Give a gift that keeps on giving by donating to plant trees in Bore, Kenya on behalf of friends, family and colleagues this Christmas.
Bore is an area of Coast Province, in eastern Kenya that sits right on the equator. This really is the front line of the climate crisis. The Bore Community Forest Project supports subsistence farmers and the wider community to adapt to the increasingly chaotic climate and protect their precious forests.
Tree nurseries dotted throughout the community provide employment for 20 women. Seedlings are grown and given to participating farmers and schools. In as little as 3-4 years they start to yield a valuable harvest of fruit, nuts and timber which gives the growers an alternative income to their current staple of charcoal-burning.
Trees are for life, not just for Christmas.
For as little as £3 you can support the Bore Community Forest Project, and donate to plant 10 trees in schools and family farms and secure vital forests in Bore. See the tabs below for ways you can support this cause.
Go green this Christmas. By planting trees on behalf of a loved one, you can enjoy a more sustainable and ethical Christmas, whilst also giving schools and families in the Bore Community Forest a gift that provides nutrition and income for years to come. Trees are for life, not just for Christmas after all!

Last year I wanted to get an ethical present for friends and family, something that would make a difference, and the Size of Wales certificates were perfect for that. Everyone who received one was really happy, and pleased to have something which they knew would help to improve the lives of others.
Reforestation and tree planting is one of the most positive ways to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Trees absorb vast amounts of greenhouse gases, which are otherwise causing our planet to heat up to very dangerous levels.
So plant trees in Bore this Christmas to twin with the beautifully adorned tree in your home.
