- 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.
- You could help an adult 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 swiss roll, 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.
