Planting 1,000 trees with Trees for Cities

Every year, Trees for Cities plants thousands of urban trees in the UK and in developing countries, to enhance structural and functional diversity both in woodlands and on city streets. In 2019 alone they planted a massive 200,000 trees!

This year, providers of Kennel Club Pet Insurance, Agria, have partnered with Trees for Cities to plant 1,000 trees in the areas of the UK that need them most. Planting began in earnest earlier this year, and is set to resume during the autumn planting season.

Rory Field, Corporate Partnerships Director at Trees for Cities, says, “We are thrilled to be working with Agria Pet Insurance and to be planting 1,000 trees in their name during 2020. We strongly believe that what’s right for the environment and what’s right for business should go hand in hand.

“Agria Pet Insurance is demonstrating that they have their finger on the pulse by incorporating sustainability into their business plan and, as such, are a great fit for us as an environmental charity.” 

Tom Vaughan, Head of Marketing at Agria Pet Insurance, says, “It’s very exciting to be part of an initiative that’s making a tangible difference to both the environment and the communities where trees are being planted.

“Trees for Cities’ positive impact environmentally and in terms of the well-being of communities benefitting from enhanced natural spaces is incredible, and something we’re extremely proud to support.”

As well as planting trees, we want to minimise our use of paper and so are introducing electronic communications with our policyholders during 2020. We hope you will join us in Going Green!
