About Us

Treesponsibility is a not-for-profit community group based in the Upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire. Established in 1998, we campaign and educate on the need for action on climate change.

We do this through providing the opportunity for people to take the positive step of planting a tree. The benefits of trees in the landscape are multiple but not least is the mitigation of flood risk. Since the Boxing Day floods of 2015, our volunteers have helped us to plant more than 50,000 trees. But we couldn’t plant any trees at all without the cooperation of local farmers and landowners.

If you want to offer land for tree planting, or volunteer, contact us and we’ll take it from there.

Treesponsibility is a 25 year project and that 25 years comes to an end in 2023. We are proud that, Forus Tree, launched in 2020 are the successors to Treesponsibility. They have already picked up the baton and they are running. They’ve just launched their website, take a look: https://www.forustree.org/
