Guernsey Trees for Life
At the June 2015 AGM the Society agreed to change the name from Guernsey Society of Men of the Trees to GUERNSEY TREES FOR LIFE.
The name change is less about perceived sexism and more about the need to send out a clear, unambiguous message about what we do and what we stand for. Guernsey Trees for Life’s ideals and values will continue to reflect the beliefs of our founder, Richard St Barbe Baker,when he started the organisation in Kenya in 1922, giving it the name attributed to the Kenyan tribespeple he worked with, the Watu wa Miti, literally “Men of the Trees”.
“Trees for Life” says what it is, because trees do just that - they support life.
