We are so lucky to live in Cambridge where there are so many wonderful trees. In our family we all have a favourite from the horse chestnut outside King’s College to the willow over the Cam. They bring us a simple joy every day; watching them morph with the seasons, colouring our landscape, and reminding us of the never-ending circle of life grounds us and brings us sense of security.
We would like a world where everyone can connect with trees while going about their every day lives. To green our world, connect us with nature, lift our souls, and inspire us along the way.
