Gripsure's Tree Planting



A TREE FOR EVERY ORDER


As we are in the timber business, what better way to thank our customers and give something back than by planting trees? From 1st January 2021, we are committing to planting a tree for every order placed with us.

To help us with this, we've teamed up with the fantastic people running Plant One Cornwall, a Community Interest Company based in Helston. With help from partners like us, Plant One are able to get more trees in Cornish soil and work towards increasing the UK's canopy cover. Alongside this, they also aim to:

  • Enable the community to plant trees where they’re most needed by matching landowners with businesses
  • Restore the Celtic Rainforest
  • Create habitats and improvement for wildlife
  • Provide expertise enabling landowners to increase biodiversity
  • Create public access woodland
  • Increase carbon capture within the UK through local communities


We are delighted to be involved with the positive work they are doing here in our beautiful county and will be joining them on for many of their tree planting days throughout the planting season!



GRIPSURE'S TEAM DAY 2020

Covid-19 meant our 2020 team day had to be a little different from usual. In true Gripsure style, we didn't let that stop us from doing something positive for the environment. From our homes, scattered across the UK and France, we each completed a 5KM run as part of a virtual race organised by Earth Runs.

Earth Runs is an organisation based on two passions: promoting exercise as a positive action for the body and mind, and the environment. Earth Runs organise virtual runs for people to enter from anywhere in the world. Each completed race earns a number of trees. Earth Runs plants the trees in areas depleted by deforestation in a bid to reverse this damage and recreate habitats for thousands of species. To date they have planted over 3,000 trees.

We're proud to share that as a team we achieved:
