Meetups and socials
Join us for cinema screenings, games night, pub quiz, beach clean and more! We aim to have at least one or two gatherings a month.
We aim to plant a minimum of 1000 trees every semester at multiple sites in the Swansea area.
We organise fundraising events to help great charities such as Movember, Student Minds, British Red Cross and more.
Our ethos is simple. We plant, we protect, and we have fun!
Doing our bit for the people & planet is where this idea of a tree society stemmed from. However, we also felt that giving back to local and international communities was also crucial; so we aim to raise as much funding and awareness for charities that our close to our hearts every semester.
We also host regular social events and collaborate with other societies and local groups in the area, so there is always something for everyone :)
If you’d like to join us then make sure to follow our Instagram and Facebook page so you can be updated with all of our events and socials throughout term time.

You can set Ecosia as your default search engine on any mainstream web browser to start planting trees with your searches straight away with no sign-up required.
The My Tree, Our Forest tree giveaway is a partnership between the Welsh Government and Coed Cadw, the Woodland Trust in Wales. The scheme gives every household in Wales the opportunity to pick up a tree to plant, free of charge, have a tree posted to them, or have a tree planted on their behalf. To find out where you can pick up your free tree, please click the link in the picture!
The Woodland Trust do a fantastic job of protecting and restoring our forests, bringing landowners, decision-makers and ordinary people on side, and fighting needless destruction wherever it may threaten. There are many ways you can support them, either through a cash donation, buying your own trees and even dedicating patches of woodland for gifts or to remember a loved one.
