CSFT is an environmental charity aiming to increase the woodland cover of Central Scotland to 22% between Glasgow and Edinburgh. To date, they have facilitated the planting of over 13 million trees.
This enhances the aesthetics and improves the biodiversity of the local environment, helping to address the legacy of de-forestation and industrial degradation in Central Scotland.
CSFT plants trees, creates woodlands and improves access to the countryside thus making the landscape and the environment a much better place for local people to enjoy.
Trees also have a major role in capturing carbon which helps offset carbon emissions.
CSFT are different to other tree planting organisations because, not only are they committed to woodland planting and management but they understand the importance of improving the quality of places to benefit people.
Their projects deliver real, meaningful and viable social benefits with a positive effect on the well-being of local communities.
CSFT traditionally work with communities and like-minded partners. However, they are keen to involve private and public organisations in benefiting both the environment and society through Corporate Social Responsibility activities. This can include anything from donating funds to plant trees to sponsoring a community project to volunteering on projects or at events.
