Trees for Tomorrow: join the Country Life planting campaign
Next year, Country Life magazine will celebrate its 125th year. To mark the occasion, we are teaming up with wealth-management firm Charles Stanley and Forestry England to plant as many trees as possible.
The Country Life Forest is already under way with funding from Charles Stanley—enough to plant the first 1,000 saplings—but we’d also like your help. For every £5 pledged, we are able to plant yet another tree and help support the planet’s delicate ecosystem.
Trees, and the paper produced from them, have been invaluable to Country Life’s success—its pages have delighted generations of readers for decades—but they are even more valuable to the environment and in the ongoing fight against climate change. Wide-scale planting is widely regarded as one of the most efficient and affordable ways to tackle the crisis and it’s a solution that’s readily available right now to any group or individual who wants to make a tangible, positive impact.
The forest (Forestry England will confirm exactly where the trees will be planted once the campaign has closed and the total number of donations is known), will include native and non-native trees, all grown from seed in the UK in Forestry England’s purpose-built nursery. Using a mixture of species is fundamental to any forest’s survival—and because of Forestry England’s pioneering research, ours will include species carefully selected to withstand a hotter and drier climates. This means that we can ensure the resilience of the Country Life and nation’s forests for generations to come.
Please help create the Country Life Forest; every £5 donated will mean that we can plant another tree.

All donations will be handled by Forestry England.
