It was previously an unused field, liable to flooding, and will now become a diverse, native, thriving woodland. It will provide a new habitat for UK wildlife with numerous benefits for people too.
The site was chosen as an opportunity to showcase what Creating Tomorrow’s Forests is all about – using expertise to create a beautiful wet woodland and water meadow, perfect for amphibians and rare insect species, which will also help control flooding in the area.
Duncan Brown, Chairman of Greenslade Taylor Hunt, said: “As a firm we are delighted to be involved in this project, which will make a real difference. Partnering with Creating Tomorrow’s Forests demonstrates a clear commitment to investing in net zero targets and increasing biodiversity for the future of the planet.”
In time the firm hopes to plant another 50-60 trees each year – one for every new employee.
The initiative is part of a project by Tomorrow’s Forests to work with businesses to fight climate change and restore natural habitats in the UK.
Trees remove carbon dioxide – a big factor in climate change - from the atmosphere and store it long term.
More and more businesses are looking to mitigate their carbon footprint and this is where Tomorrow’s Forests can help.
