What is Plant a Tree for Africa?

Plant a Tree for Africa was conceived by Ricoh in 2007 to help us work towards solutions to stop climate change and to encourage everyone to make small changes in their daily lives to reduce their carbon footprint. Plant a Tree for Africa offers all Ricoh Women’s British Open supporters the opportunity to make a difference by pledging their support online or at the Championship.

Players can also make a difference by making birdies and eagles during the four days of competition. Ricoh has pledged to plant five trees for every birdie, ten trees for every eagle and 1000 trees for an albatross during tournament play.
