Trees Planted So Far

Barnet United Synagogue joined the JTree Community in June 2022

Trees are nature’s own miraculous carbon captors so we need to plant more of them. As the eco lead for Barnet Shul, I was looking for our next project and came across the Tiny Forest initiative.

The goal was to plant 600 trees on a site near Henlys Corner, adjacent to the very polluted North Circular Road. On a cold, wet, sleety afternoon, an intrepid group of us from Barnet, together with communities of other faiths, dug in the mud and achieved our goal.

600 trees were planted and it was a truly exhilarating experience!
