Trees We Love

Hoy is delighted to announce the third year of funding for Trees We Love! Our TWL program is a source of celebration, recognition and much-needed positive environmental news; it is a reiteration of the importance of our past; which has produced our present and, perhaps, act as encouragement to preserve our future. We believe it to be a high-impact conservation program with positive, long-term results. 2018 awardees will receive permanent recognition, promoting stewardship for, and appreciation of, our beautiful heritage trees.
