Let's plant trees!
WE ARE PLANTING TREE’S WITH TreeEra!
We intend to reduce Freshwells carbon footprint and combat the effects of climate change by community-funding the planting of trees.
We donate a small amount of money each month which finances the planting of tree’s in Canada’s expansive wilderness.
TreeEra sprouted on the grounds between a belief in climate change and a lack of knowing how to help.
While there are many ways to reduce our carbon footprint, TreeEra wanted to provide people with a convenient
and simple way to contribute to a not-so-simple problem. Planting trees seemed like a perfect place to start.

HOW IT WORKS
Freshwell camping donates $12 per month. TreeEra use that money working with a local tree planting company to plant 100 tree’s on our behalf annually.
• Thats $1.44 per tree.
• Roughly the same as three cups of coffee per month.
• Each tree will offset 1 tonne of carbon in it’s lifetime.
Why we want to do this
Freshwell Camping resides in a recognised area of outstanding natural beauty not far from Exmoor National park. Our respect of that natural environment goes hand in hand with planting tree’s.
Trees provide us the air to breath – the more we plant the more we benefit.
Reduce carbon footprint
All aspects of our lives have a carbon footprint. Planting trees is an easy way to offset that footprint
Climate change feels like a problem
But planting tree’s provides a simple first step to make a small difference individually but a big difference as a community.
A healthy young tree
can have the same net cooling effect as 10 air conditioning units running 20/hrs per day
We lose a forest
the size of New York City every 48 hours globally. Planting trees fights back.
