• Premier plants a further 1,000 trees to boost woodland growth

        • The Premier Paper Group held the latest of its tree planting action days last Thursday (23rd March) in conjunction with the Woodland Trust. Around 1,000 new sapling trees were planted by customers and staff at the Pullabrook Wood in the Bovey Valley National Nature Reserve.

          Members of Premier’s staff, together with around 20 customers, helped to plant the saplings which will help to regrow and reflourish a forest area which had suffered an outbreak of the tree disease spread by Japanese Larch. This plant disease is becoming an increasing problem for woodland owners as it gradually spreads and infects larch trees. It is a fungus-like disease which spreads and that causes extensive damage to trees and other plants, but is particularly dominant where stands of larch are growing in timber plantations.

          The disease was diagnosed at Pullabrook Woods by the Forestry Commission’s Plant Health Team earlier last year. To reduce the chances of continuing infection, the larch stands had to be clear felled at the site prior to this recent event, and so following this, the area was prepared and cleared in preparation for the tree planting day by Premier staff and students from Exeter College in November last year.

          Brad Goldsmith, Premier Paper Group, Marketing Executive said, “there is an immense sense of achievement in braving the elements, to plant a significant number of trees that will help regenerate this beautiful woodland. This is a great example of how customers, who engage in our Carbon Capture programme make a real difference in creating habitats that are vital to both wildlife and people.”

          During the past year, more than 65,000 trees have been planted by Premier’s customers, all of whom have participated and engaged in Premier’s Carbon Capture scheme, which has helped to capture some 11,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions, a unique environmental achievement.
