COED AGRI: Geraint John

Coed Argi Geraint John
Our CoedAgri tree planting scheme has been running full steam ahead this year, with over 600 trees sent out to our readers already! This month we hear from another one of our successful applicants - Geraint John from Pembrokeshire.

Mae ein cynllun plannu coed CoedAgri wedi bod yn rhedeg nerth ei draed, gyda dros 600 o goed wedi’u hanfon i’n darllenwyr yn barod! Y mis hwn cawn glywed gan un arall o’n hymgeiswyr llwyddiannus – Geraint John o Sir Benfro.

“We recently planted 100 trees from CoedAgri along one of our field boundaries. This will help to create a wildlife corridor at our smallholding Bloomfield Farm in Pembrokeshire. Last year we diversified part of our grassland, mainly used for tack sheep over the winter and silage in the summer, into a small family-run campsite. We had positive feedback from our guests on our ethos of enhancing and protecting nature. These trees will help the environment and increase wildlife at our smallholding long into the future.”

The aim of the CoedAgri scheme is to help offset the paper used in printing the Agri Trader magazine and making a positive impact on the local environment, by giving back to our readers and sending out over 1,200 native trees free of charge each year. So, if you’d like to take part, just read on to find out how!

Nod cynllun CoedAgri yw helpu wrthbwyso’r papur a ddefnyddiwyd wrth argraffu’r cylchgrawn Agri Trader a chael effaith gadarnhaol ar yr amgylchedd lleol, trwy roi yn ôl i’n darllenwyr ac anfon dros 1,200 o goed brodorol yn rhad ac am ddim bob blwyddyn. Felly, os hoffech gymryd rhan, darllenwch ymlaen i ddarganfod sut!

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, so don’t wait too long if you’d like to take part and join us in making a positive difference for the environment!
