In November, Premier Paper Group, the UK’s largest independent paper merchant, held a day of tree planting, where customers and staff joined forces to plant some 2,500 trees at a site in rural Hertfordshire.
Trees were planted at Heartwood Forest, owned by the Woodland Trust, which is set to become the UK’s largest continuous new native woodland.
David Jones, Premier Paper Group Marketing Director, said: “A big thank you to everyone who attended the tree planting day. It was good to see the Carbon Capture programme in action. We managed to exceed the expectations of the Woodland Trust by planting 2,500 trees during the day. So far this year, customers who have engaged in the programme have helped to plant over 55,000 trees, capturing 11,000 tonnes of CO2 – an incredible achievement!”
