David Wilson Homes South West has taken a festive approach to promoting care for the environment, with a grow your own Christmas tree for anyone who completes on a property at one of their developments between now and 25 December.
Sales director Louise Ware said: “Conservation is an important issue for us as a housebuilder, and something we want to support our buyers to get involved in too. Reducing our impact on the environment is a huge challenge, and though no one person can do everything, we can all do something to collectively make improvements for the future.
“There is something very satisfying about growing anything yourself, and the same goes for a Christmas tree. By giving baby trees to new homeowners we are marking their new beginnings in a new home, helping to develop their gardens and encourage small scale conservation efforts, as well as providing something homeowners can enjoy for many years to come.
“Preserving and protecting nature is of great importance to us at David Wilson Homes, and we take pride in our conservation efforts. This Christmas tree project fits perfectly with National Tree Week coming up, because we can help promote the importance of tree planting for the benefit of our communities and the environment.”
National Tree Week runs from Saturday 23 November to Sunday 1 December, and is an annual campaign which works to inspire around a quarter of a million people to get their hands dirty and collectively plant around a million trees*.
The trees given to new homeowners will be the traditional Victorian Norway Spruce variety, supplied in hessian sacks ready for planting.
David Wilson Homes strives to plant or retain an average of 20 trees, shrubs and climbers for every home it builds, and is committed to highlighting the positive impact of planting trees.
