Staff from accountancy firm RSM have been branching out from their day-to-day duties and helping to make Birmingham greener by planting hundreds of trees in support of the national charity Trees for Cities.

A total of 600 saplings were planted by 14 staff at one of three sites across the Sutton Coldfield area where a total of 5,000 trees were planted throughout December.

Trees for Cities is an independent charity, which inspires people to plant and love trees in cities worldwide.

Set up as Trees for London in 1993, Trees for Cities’ aim is to create social cohesion and beautify the UK’s cities through tree planting, community-led design, education and training initiatives in urban areas that need it most.

The charity is one of three which is supported on a national basis by RSM.

Simon Hart, regional managing partner for RSM in the Midlands said: “The work Trees for Cities does is essential to maintaining the local woodlands for future generations.

“As a firm that is an integral part of the local business community, I am delighted that we’ve been able to demonstrate our commitment to the local community through this important initiative.”
