Trees for Life, the award-winning conservation charity working to restore the Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands, today received a £10,000 boost from Edinburgh-based global asset managing business Standard Life.

The donation, which will fund the purchase of 10,000 native trees, was presented to Trees for Life’s Founder and Executive Director Alan Watson Featherstone at the charity’s offices in Findhorn Bay by James Mitchell, an Account Manager from Standard Life.

Alan Watson Featherstone said: “We are extremely grateful to Standard Life for its generous and inspiring support for our work. This latest donation will enable us to take a big step forward in our commitment to plant a quarter of a million trees during 2008 and 2009.”

Trees for Life’s ambitious drive to plant 250,000 new trees is the charity’s latest pledge to the United Nations Environment Programme’s Billion Trees Campaign – a global push to address climate change by encouraging people, organisations and businesses to plant seven billion trees worldwide by the end of 2009.

Garry Morrison, Corporate Pensions Director for Standard Life said: “I am delighted to have been involved with this exciting initiative and pleased that our contribution has boosted Trees for Life’s drive. Standard Life is committed to reducing our environmental impact and we are happy to make a difference.”

Standard Life launched its "Go Paperless" campaign with a commitment to have a seedling planted for each of the first 10,000 customers who switched from paper to electronic statements for their pension plan or bond. It now has over 13,000 customers signed up to this innovative service and as more customers sign up, less paper will be produced.

Standard Life has supported Trees for Life’s work since 2005. Its Treemail promotion saw over half a million members of The Standard Life Assurance Company opt to receive shareholder communications electronically, raising £150,000 for Trees for Life.

“It’s very significant and laudable that Standard Life, as one of Scotland’s largest companies, has made such a substantial commitment to the restoration of the Caledonian Forest. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership in the future, and we hope it will inspire other companies to help restore Scotland’s native forests,” said Mr. Watson Featherstone.

The Caledonian Forest originally covered much of the Scottish Highlands, with native pinewoods in a wild landscape of mountains, lochs and rivers. Today only one per cent of the forest survives.

Individuals and companies can support Trees for Life by having dedicated trees or groves planted for themselves or as gifts – creating a fantastic habitat for wildlife and people, as well as being a simple, positive step in the fight against climate change.

People and companies wanting to make a positive, personal difference to the environment while enjoying an inspiring visit to the wild Highlands can also join Conservation Volunteer Weeks. These suit all abilities and anyone over 18 years old can take part.
