Why rescue trees

Everyone knows trees are important.

They pump out clean air, absorb toxins, create habitats for wildlife, prevent flooding and generally enrich our lives. But when they get stressed or start declining, the mentality is often geared towards chopping them down instead of treating them.

When it comes to significant ancient trees, getting the chainsaws out is the last thing anyone wants. That’s why we started Tree Rescue; so we could save veteran trees and also demonstrate in a big way that deep-soil enriched biochar treatment is more effective, cheaper and a less disruptive route than simply chopping them down and replanting. This is all about behaviour change.
