Business supporters

Helping to grow the White Rose Forest as a business supporter is a great way to give back to the community where your business operates. Your support will not only help improve the natural environment in your area, but could also boost the local economy, increase staff morale and give you a really good news story.

Tree planting in Leeds with business supporters

The most efficient way for your business to help grow the White Rose Forest and the larger Northern Forest is to make a donation. Support the White Rose Forest with a £250 donation and we will plant at least 25 trees on an approved White Rose Forest site of your choice. We will send you a White Rose Forest supporter badge for your website and say a public thank you on our Twitter channel.

Each tree will be part of a new community woodland, supported by its local authority and planted and maintained to a standard approved by the Forestry Commission.

You can donate to any of the following current community forest tree planting projects in North and West Yorkshire. We add projects to the list as they become available.

  • West Yorkshire – help plant trees at one of our current sites in West Yorkshire
  • North Yorkshire – help plant trees at one of our current sites in North Yorkshire
  • Dewsbury Country Park – help transform Dewsbury’s newest public open space and one of the largest new areas of tree planting in the north of England.
  • Woodland creation in Leeds  to support tree planting projects in Leeds please visit the Leeds City Council Arium website to find out more and make a donation. New woodland sites are planned across Leeds on council owned land.
  • River Aire catchment (Landscapes for Water) – support current tree planting initiatives within the River Aire valley designed to help slow the flow of water runoff into the river and protect communities from future damaging flooding events.
  • River Calder catchment (Landscapes for Water) – support current tree planting initiatives within the River Calder valley designed to help slow the flow of water runoff into the river and protect communities from future damaging flooding events.
  • Scammonden Water – help regenerate the land around this major reservoir that is now a popular recreation area, for the benefit of both biodiversity and the public. 

    If you would like to support a particular woodland in North or West Yorkshire that is not on our list please email us at whiteroseforest@kirklees.gov.uk.
