• Premier Paper plants 3,000 new trees at Heartwood Forest

        • The Premier Paper Group teamed up with their customers, the Woodland Trust, TV’s Julia Bradbury, and Channel info, to plant 3,000 trees at Heartwood Forest.

          On 27th November, 150 of Premier’s customers and guests, including Martin from Channel info (pictured), travelled to the Heartwood Forest, located just north of St Albans. Heartwood Forest was acquired by the Woodland Trust in 2008 and its 347 hectare (860 acre) estate is now home to pockets of existing ancient woodland and new plantations, combined with wild flower meadows and a community orchard.

          Having arrived at the site, Premier’s guests were greeted with a choice of freshly brewed teas and coffees as well as hot sandwiches, produced locally. After breakfast, introductory speeches were given by Premier Paper and TV’s Julia Bradbury, before taking to the field with a shovel and a sapling for a special tree planting demonstration from Wilder Things’ Tim Kirwin.

          Participants worked tirelessly to plant the saplings of native trees, going above and beyond the Woodland Trust’s target of 2,000 trees to ensure 3,000 saplings in total were planted on the day. This planting day will be one of the last at Heartwood as the Woodland Trust’s planting project at the site comes to a close; Premier and their customers have come together to plant trees at Heartwood Forest for the last four years. As the trees mature the new woodland will provide habitats to an array of wildlife; from buzzards to woodpeckers, foxes to deer and countless species of butterfly and other insects native to the area.

          Back at base, a lunch of homemade soup and pasties was prepared and many of the guests were then treated to a guided walk through Heartwood Forest. All went away with Woodland Trust goody bags containing copies of Julia Bradbury’s latest book and DVD.

          Hussein Ismail, Marketing Executive for the Premier Paper Group said, “it’s been an excellent event, the weather has been on our side, perfect for planting trees although the flint filled ground proved to be challenging. Our tree planting days provide a great platform for our customers and their clients to showcase their dedication to the environment by actually coming out, planting trees and helping to make a real difference.”

          From its launch to beginning of 2017, Premier’s Carbon Capture programme has raised over £500,000 for the Woodland Trust.
