Tilhill supports Future Trees Trust mission to use research to ensure the next generation of broadleaved trees will deliver all the environmental, social and economic benefits possible.
David Edwards, Forestry Director at Tilhill says: “The work of Future Trees Trust is vital for the future of our woodlands where trees need to be resilient to the impacts of climate change such as pests and diseases. Tilhill is therefore pleased to be able to offer our ongoing support to such important work.”
Jo Clark, Head of Research at Future Trees Trust says: “We’re delighted with Tilhill’s continued support of our work. Their donation will fund important research to secure a future for broadleaved trees. Because our trees have been selected for superior growth and form, using improved planting stock, this can help a crop get established more quickly, resulting in reduced weed control, a shorter rotation, and increased recoverable volume. As these trees come from a wide genetic base, they are likely to remain healthier for longer, have greater ability to adapt to changes in climate and sequester more carbon.”
