Fresh Design & Print plant 3,000 trees in a day to add to the UKs largest continuous new native woodland

Fresh Design & Print recently took part in a Carbon Capture Tree Planting Day, in Heartwood Forest, Hertfordshire, A mega day of action saw more than 3,000 trees planted at a site which is set to become the UK’s biggest continuous new native woodland.

Held on 27th November, the Tree Planting Day saw over 150 participants from ethically minded businesses involved on the planting of the trees to support the Carbon Capture scheme. Guests arrived at Heartwood Forest, which is a ‘Woodland Carbon Site’ in St. Albans, where they were greeted with hot drinks and breakfast to set them up for a hard days planting. Following introductory briefs and guides on how to plant trees, they then planted in excess of 3,000 trees including Oak, Alder, Willow, Wild Cherry, Rowan, Holly, Beech, Hazel amongst others at the site.

Carbon Capture®

CO2 emissions from the paper purchased and used by Fresh Design & Print is compensated for by planting and conserving native woodland right here in the UK. Carbon Capture sets a new standard for CO2 mitigation, removing equivalent amounts from the atmosphere through the creation of native woodland across the country.

The scheme operates under the Woodland Trust’s Woodland Carbon scheme and the Government’s Woodland Carbon Code, a voluntary standard for woodland creation projects in the UK. The independent certification to this standard provides assurance and clarity about the carbon benefits of these sustainably managed woodlands. It is calculated that 25m² of native UK woodland will capture and store one tonne of CO2 and creating large areas of new native woodland, will, over time, remove hundreds of thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Heartwood Forest:

Clare Allen, Head of Partnerships at the Woodland Trust said: “Heartwood Forest is a really special site for the Woodland Trust. It is our largest site in England at 857 acres. It is our biggest woodland creation site and as well as this it is also has several areas of much treasured irreplaceable ancient woodland dating back hundreds of years.”
