Earlier in 2023, Stowe Family Law partnered with The Future Forest Company to launch our ‘Stowe Forest’, planting a tree for every colleague as we hit a milestone of 300 colleagues.
We have continued to plant trees for every new starter and are committed to carrying on as we grow. At last count, we have almost 350 trees and with more colleagues set to join us, it’s going to keep growing!
We have just received an update newsletter from Future Forest and wanted to share some of the news with you so you can see how we are contributing to the work they do to restore biodiversity and make a difference.
The trees that Stowe Family Law are planting are not only helping to restore vital UK woodlands, but they are also:
– Supporting the restoration and protection of wildlife habitats
– Restoring vital biodiversity
– Assisting in the restoration of ecosystem services that provide a myriad of benefits to people and wildlife
– Helping to fight the climate crisis
At our 345.5ha site in the Yorkshire Dales, Swarthghyll, we witnessed a stunning display of wildflowers over the summer. While wetlands aren’t always synonymous with flowers, there are a variety of flora species that thrive in the bogs! Notable ones at Swarthghyll include Cowberry Flowers, which provide food for various wildlife, including birds and small mammals, and contribute to the biodiversity of moorland and peatland ecosystems.
