Published: 6 March 2020 - Alex Fordham
Squire’s Garden Centres has donated 300 Silver Birch trees to local parks and green spaces as part of its ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign.
The trees were planted this February and March in over 30 locations, including Priory Park in Reigate, Stoke Recreation Ground in Guildford, Dinton Pastures Country Park in Wokingham, West Street Cemetery in Farnham, The Meath in Godalming, Homewood Park in Chertsey and Broom Road Recreation Ground in Teddington.
Squire’s campaign started last autumn, when they donated 5p for every plant sold in September 2019 to go towards providing Silver Birch trees for the community to enjoy.
Squire’s chairman, Sarah Squire, said: “We are very proud of our ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. We want to thank our customers by giving back to the local area, and what better way to do this than by providing stunning Silver Birch trees that people can enjoy for years to come.
"Silver Birch are native British trees that are great for the environment, as they can improve air and soil quality, and they are also good for wildlife too, providing food and habitats for many birds and insects. We have been working closely with local councils and community groups who have planted the young trees this February and March in numerous parks and green spaces, so that they can be enjoyed by everyone.”
