TREES group stands for Training, Regeneration, Employment, Education and Sustainability Trees is one of the most established social enterprises in Leicester and has grown from a turnover of £500k in 1998 with 14 employees to a complex group turning over £7.4million and employing 180 people in 2007.

Their unique selling proposition (USP) of the TREES group is that they provide more for the money to their clients, to grant bodies, to their staff and ultimately to the government. By delivering the contract as a social enterprise they do the job but also create a job, or a training opportunity and in this way help to strengthen individuals and their communities. Their businesses include Thorpete a gas servicing company with clients among Housing Associations and Registered Social Landlords, Newlife for construction services, Highpoint a conference centre and Ground Control providing landscaping services.
