A big part of Tala is our Ten Trees conservation programme working with our charity partner the Heart of England Forest. Planting 10 trees for every 200 products we sell wouldn't be possible without the hard labour of Stephen, Head Forester for the charity. The whole Tala team visited HoEF last Friday, so it is only timely that we introduce the world to this wonderful tree-planting man!
I am the Head Forester for the Heart of England Forest. I have been involved here for the last ten years and been responsible for planting over one million trees in that time. Our goal is exciting and ambitious, but I really do believe we can achieve the dream of a 30,000 acre broadleaved forest, one tree at a time.
1. What were your first impressions of Tala?
A team full of energy, very enthusiastic and so friendly.... what’s not to like!
2. What's your favourite Tala product?
All products because more product sales = more trees planted.
3. What are your favourite pass-times outside of work?
Blues and trees.
4. What did you have for brekkie this morning?
I don’t eat breakfast but do have two strong coffees.
5. What's your go-to drink?
Coffee with plenty of milk.
6. If you could be an animal for a day what would you be?
A bird, probably a bird of prey soaring on thermals looking at the landscape below.
Keep rockin Stephen! Stay tuned for a full blog post this Friday about Tala Ten Trees and our trip to the woods.
