Rotary International President Ian Riseley recently stated  that protecting the environment and curbing climate change are essential in supporting to Rotary’s goal of sustainable service and our commitment to communities


In the UK, Rotary is committing to planting 47,000 trees in 2018/19  as a lasting benefit to the environment


In York,  our project is to offer parents of all babies born in York in 2018-19 the chance to have a tree planted (planting starts November 2018) and maintained (at no cost) locally, in commemoration of their baby's birth


Note:  The tree will not be specifically identifiable with your baby's name and will not be "labelled"



If you have had a new baby born in 2018/19, CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD WISHES. Our offer is to provide, plant and maintain a tree on a site in York to commemorate your new arrival.  


There is NO COST to you, the parent.
