EASY IDEAS
Try not to waste paper: Recycle clean paper and card, draw on scrap paper and only print off things you really need.

Encourage adults to go paperless and receive their bills digitally.

Walk around your local park and search for some of the trees from the book.

ADVANCED IDEAS

You could plant a tree at school or in your garden, if you have one.
Please follow up-to-date guidance on tree planting:

Fundraise and donate the proceeds to a tree conservation charity:

  • Organise a second-hand book swap
  • Follow a tutorial on making paper, then sell homemade letter paper and notebooks
  • Run a tree-themed cake sale:
    Mini yule logs (or slices of a larger log laid flat as ‘tree stumps’).
    Cupcakes with wood or bark-patterned icing on top.
    Leaf and tree-shaped biscuits using a cookie cutter.
  • Sponsored tree-bathing.
  • Write to your council to encourage them to plant more trees locally.
  • Invite the headteacher to your classroom for a class meeting about adding more trees to the school grounds.
  • Research tree diseases and how to report them to stop their spread.
