The launch of the ‘TreeWilder’ monthly subscription service offers a simple, inspirational way for consumers to support a sustainable planet.
TreeWilder is the brainchild of Richard Clarke, a Doncaster-based zoologist with experience in international conservation. Since 2018, Clarke has built a reputation for exceptional carbon offsetting projects that restore the wilds of Scotland. These world-class projects benefit a range of rare species from red squirrels to pine martens, from capercaillies to Scottish wildcats and from ospreys to otters.
Hitherto, Clarke has been focused on supporting responsible business to achieve their offsetting needs via Highland Carbon. Whereas, the TreeWilder brand has been launched to serve the general public. Funding will enable newly created forests that feature a diverse range of native tree species to replicate the way our forests would have appeared thousands of years ago. TreeWilder also restores spectacular peatland habitats, reflooding them as habitat for flora and fauna. These projects stop methane, an even more insidious greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, from being emitted at scale.
TreeWilder also supports robust tropical forest protection and exceptional renewable energy projects. This cocktail approach achieves both global and UK impacts with an affordable price point. People can sign-up to a starter package from TreeWilder for as little as £4 per month - about the price of a coffee on the high street - to offset their household by three tonnes of CO2 per annum.
Clarke says: “It is essential to offset through a partner that has the highest ethical standards. Some projects offered by competitors do not achieve native forest restoration, rather, they entail tree planting on arable farmland or reduced timber removal credits. TreeWilder’s nature projects protect and restore wilderness. They are both pucker and wilder. That’s what we are all about.”
All TreeWilder projects are fully traceable. They comply with recognised frameworks and count towards the objectives set out in the United Nations Paris Agreement.
