SPAR UK supports the One Tree Planted campaign

SPAR UK has supported SPAR International’s 60th anniversary by planting 12,500 trees in England with the organisation One Tree Planted – equivalent to five trees per store in the UK.

The SPAR One Tree Planted campaign involves SPAR businesses across the globe.

From January to June 2022, SPAR UK planted 66 varieties of trees and plants including elder, Monterey pine, apple and juniper. The planting was spread out across England in micro-scale projects collaborating with local communities and forests.

The forests include:

  • North East Community Forest
  • Cumbria Coastal Community Forest
  • White Rose Forest
  • Humber Forest
  • City of Trees
  • The Mersey Forest
  • Greenwood Community Forest
  • Forest of Mercia
  • Forest of Marston Vale
  • Forest of Avon
  • Great Western Community Forest
  • Thames Chase Community Forest
  • Plymouth and South Devon Community Forest

Suzanne Dover, SPAR UK brand & marketing director, said: “We are delighted to be able to celebrate our international brand’s 90th  anniversary with such a worthwhile project. Being at the heart of neighbourhoods, by protecting the environment for future generations to come, is central to who we are.

“The symbol of a tree is part of our global identity, and planting trees is hugely valuable in producing oxygen, supplying homes for wildlife as well as looking good in our landscape. SPAR One Tree Planted campaign is a fantastic way for us to contribute to increasing the tree cover across England.”

SPAR International has planted 21,681 trees globally, with an additional 6,000 trees to be planted in the coming months.
