COED AGRI: Adam Cross

Adam Cross & Jaxon
Our goal with the CoedAgri scheme is to offset the paper we use in printing the 25,000 copies of AgriTrader we send out each month.

We aim to do this by sending out 1,200 native trees to our readers each year, whether that’s a single tree, or 100 to fill an unused corner of land, offset ash dieback, or add to a hedgerow, all applications will be considered.

This month we hear from Adam Cross, from Bwlchygroes who has recently received 100 native trees via our CoedAgri scheme – a mixture of oak, crab apple, rowan, hornbeam and field maple.  Pictured is Adam and his son Jaxon getting ready to plant. He told us, “I read about the scheme in your newsletter and thought it was a great idea.  We are using the trees to restore the tree lines dividing the fields where we have lost a lot of trees due to ash dieback.  I’m hoping to allow these trees to replace the large trees in the hedge, and then add to the hedges in years to come, creating more biodiversity across the fields.”

Diolch i Adam am ddanfon y llun atom ohonno fe a Jaxon!  

Thank you to Adam and Jaxon for taking part and sending in your photos!

Everyone is welcome to apply for our CoedAgri scheme, whether you want to plant 1 or 100 trees, all applications will be considered. 

To apply, you just need to send an email to coedagri@agritrader.co.uk with:

  • Your full name.
  • Address.
  • Telephone number.
  • How many trees you’d like, from 1 to 100.
  • What species you’d like (this can be a mix of any native species).
  • A brief description of where you would be planting the trees.

 

All we ask in return is that you send us a few photos of the trees once you’re done planting, along with a little bit about your experience with the CoedAgri scheme to share in our newsletter and on social media.

If your application is successful, we’ll deliver the bare rooted trees to you in the next planting season – starting again in October – along with tree guards, and a tree care guide. Spaces are filling up fast though, so don’t wait too long if you’d like to take part and join us in making a positive difference for the environment!
