Evening Light Trees Shropshire

Our story

My name is Justin Powell .

Inspired by nature, I started the non profit organisation Trees for Shropshire in early 2020, with the aim of planting trees and conserving UK wildlife in my home county and those adjoining it.

I first trained as gamekeeper and then after many years in the wild outdoors, I made the move to inside, setting up my first workshop making interior design products from wood. I also worked for Creamore Mill Woodturnery for many years, you can find their beautiful and useful products in our shop. My full time job at the present is a handyman, alongside my wife Esther, a painter and decorator.

Why now?

Concern for what’s happening to the environment I grew up in, the threat to UK wildlife and bio diversity loss on a frightening scale has drawn me back outdoors. You can find me planting trees, conserving and creating habitat and protecting UK wildlife across the region, through Trees for Shropshire and helping out other like minded groups where I can.

I’ve put my years of experience in the world of interiors to good use, curating a fine collection of work from my favourite UK makers for you to enjoy in our shop, many of the products being inspired by nature too.

I’m hoping that with your support we can plant even more trees, create more habitat for our struggling UK wildlife and promote our UK makers.

Whilst On Land and Tree is run separately from Trees for Shropshire as a stand alone business, all profits will go to fight the same causes,  90% going  to Trees for Shropshire and 10% will go to the amazing Cuan Wildlife Rescue, who currently rescue and treat around 5000 cases every year, most of which are then released back into the habitat where they were found.

So join with us…be inspired by nature, plant trees, protect our stunning UK wildlife, and support our super talented UK makers, all from the comfort of your favourite armchair.
