The trees were planted in February and earlier this month in more than 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.
The retailer’s campaign started last autumn, when it 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. They are 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.”
