A FUNERAL supply company has donated over 200 trees to the South Downs National Park.

Tributes, of Angmering, made the donation as a thank you to those who took part in its annual customer survey.

This tree-planting project will help reintroduce native tree species and preserve wildlife habitats with the aim of contributing to the fight against climate change. 

With more woodland than any other National Park in England or Wales, trees form a vital part of the South Downs landscape.

Adam Masters, managing director of Tributes, said: "We understand that much of our work involves timber and other raw materials, so we've renewed our commitments to ensure that we develop and buy our products in a responsible way. 

“Although we always source timber and wood-based products from certified, known and legal sources, or from recycled material, it was important to us to contribute to our local woodland to offset some of the impact we've made. 

“We're delighted to have created these links with the South Downs National Park, which is literally on the doorstep of our office and warehouses, and look forward to working on similar projects in the future."
