9 Trees, as a concept, was formed in 2018 by Michael Cunningham: an experienced habitat and business manager. He was joined by Ash Kent, in 2019, an experienced countryside and habitat manager. We now have a team of amazing volunteers who’ve joined us. Our vision is to tackle climate change by restoring new woodland habitats, promoting biodiversity, creating jobs within the countryside sector and connecting more people to nature.
We are a Community Interest Company, ploughing any profits back into good schemes, training and education. At 9Trees we plant in the UK, geolocate your trees and keep you up to date with their progress. We continue to look after your trees, so they store as much carbon as possible. Our specialist knowledge in conservation means we’re able to create woodlands that support local wildlife and improve biodiversity. We work with local authorities and organisations to plant on carefully selected land, not destroying vital flower meadows, peatland or other special sites of scientific interest. We work directly within communities, using local specialists to give your trees the very best start in life. All our trees are native and grown in the UK, with the species of tree chosen to suit each site. Some landowners will even allow you to visit your trees!
