Growing greater together - the impact of the trees

Growing greater together

To celebrate 75 years of growing greater together, of helping our customers and communities grow, we've planted 75,000 trees across the areas we call home.

Growing greater together - the impact of the trees

We celebrated 75 years with 75,000 trees

Why plant trees? Trees are growth, essential to all life on earth.

They give shelter, oxygen, filter the water we drink and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s biodiversity. Tree planting is one of the simplest and most effective ways of tackling climate change. Just as importantly, this is about understanding change is coming and we are doing our bit in a real way. Like Greater Bank, trees are long-lasting.

Have a look at what we’ve been up to for the past 75 years below.

Our first 75 years

The impact of 75,000 trees

Making a difference to our customers, our staff and the community is what drives us. This project not only helped our regions grow greater but it will help make a difference for future generations. We've unpacked exactly what 75,000 trees mean for the communities we call home, as well as our environment as a whole below.

What does 75,000 trees mean? See the impact for yourself.

Planting 75,000 trees was a huge undertaking and something we didn't commit to lightly. But what impact do our plantings have on the environment and how will this be felt by generations yet to come?

We've unpacked the data behind our plantings and produced a downloadable comic book PDF - perfect for helping young minds connect with what it means to connect with the natural world around them.
