What is #GreenBritain?
Working in partnership with Certainly Wood we will be planting new woodlands every year and we want you to be part of our #GreenBritain scheme. Trees absorb CO2, and the more we have the better. There are numerous benefits in creating more woodland, including providing a vital ecosystem for flora and fauna, and a means for sustainable and renewable energy. While we all enjoy walking through mature woodland, healthy woodland needs to be well managed. A healthy woodland relies on thinning young trees. This involves cutting out the smaller, weaker trees to allow the others more light so they can grow and expand. It is these thinnings that provide our partner, Certainly Wood, with timber for quality firewood. Managing woodland this way makes wood a great renewable and sustainable fuel, providing us with fuel to heat our homes.
