Penton Park commits to #EveryTreeCounts

Penton Park, Andover Wedding Venue, pledges to the #EveryTreeCounts scheme with celebratory tree planting.


#EveryTreeCounts is a campaign by the Woodland Trust to encourage and achieve 1million trees being planted to help fight climate change.

Andover wedding venue Penton Park has always been passionate about their green policy, and regenerating their stunning estate trees. On the 29th November they are joining with one of their couples (J&G), who married a year ago to plant a commemorative tree to celebrate this special occasion.

Country estates have a duty to help preserve and restore their local environment, and pledging to commit to plant a tree with the #EveryTreeCounts is a great way to support this fantastic movement.

In 2019 Penton Park have already successfully planted 10 trees around the grounds. But when approached by their couple to discuss an anniversary tree planting the decision was made to purchase a special and mature specimen of a Judas Tree. Sharing the cost between them means both parties are helping contribute to plant this tree, whilst ensuring the beautiful and rare specimens currently on the estate are preserved for the future. This tree will also be a special and lifetime celebration of the marriage, visible for all to see as it grows and matures over time.

Danielle Rolfe (Managing Partner) commented,

“We are passionate about committing to the environment, but also celebrating the memories of those couples who choose our home to celebrate their wedding. Planting a tree to celebrate this occasion seems like the perfect way to help preserve the environment, and celebrate such a special time”
