TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. Nominations for the 'Turn The Black Country Green' scheme ('the scheme') must be made through the website using the form provided here. The closing date for submissions is 30th June 2018.
2. Submission of details during the nomination process does not guarantee acceptance onto the scheme. Each nomination will be considered against criteria from the Woodland Trust for successful planting of saplings.
3. Submission of the form will indicate that you have, or are able to get, confirmation from the landowner of permission to plant a tree on their property. This permission will need to be submitted before a sapling can be allocated to you.
4. The tree's we expect to receive are a mixture of Silver Birch, Rowan and Wild Cherry and, where possible we will try and offer a selection of trees to applicants. However different species will be suitable for different locations and may restrict the variation we are able to give you.
5. You understand that suitable space is needed around the young tree to allow for full growth. The trees we expect to receive have a general guideline requirement of a 2 metre diameter to allow for both root growth and canopy coverage. The chosen space should also be a good distance from any surrounding buildings or structures.
6. The award of a sapling is at no cost to the recipient, however (where possible) the tree should be planted in an area accessible to 'the public'. This could mean the wider community or specific users of your group or service.
7. By accepting a tree, you are also confirming your approval for a dedication plaque to be inserted next to the sapling to denote it as part of the scheme.
8. From the point of planting, you agree that the tree becomes the responsibility of the recipient organisation and undertake to protect, care for and maintain it in accordance with widely available care guidelines and to the best of your ability.
9. Black Country Radio and Waterfront Media CIC take no responsibility for damage caused, in any way, from issues arising after the tree is planted.
10. Black Country Radio will publicise successful recipients through their website, social media channels and on air. If you wish to opt out of this publicity - for whatever reason - please notify your contact at the station as soon as possible.
11. Whilst every effort will be made to cover a variety of recipients and areas of the community, it would be impossible to give similar levels of coverage to all thirty recipients. Where possible, Black Country Radio undertakes to provide a wide variety of coverage across a breadth of organisation in varying areas of the community.
