From the beginning of 2020, our private client team are funding the planting of a tree in the National Forest for every Will that we're asked to draft.
Our new Will clients will be given a choice of six trees to plant and will receive an e-certificate when their tree has been planted.
In an increasingly paperless society, the writing of a Will is still done on paper. Although much discussion has taken place on whether digital wills will be permissible in the future, for now at least, this is unlikely to happen.
Therefore by using paper to write our clients' wills, we also want to give back in a way that promotes a greener and healthier future as well as leaving a lasting legacy.
Forest restoration is a key strategy for helping to stop global warming but at present, Britain is lagging behind. However, the National Forest has planted almost 9 million trees so far and, as part of our responsible business pledge, we are pleased to support their tree planting initiative.
