Premier and customers help create new hedgerows in West Yorkshire

Premier has teamed up with some of their customers and the Woodland Trust, to create new hedgerows in West Yorkshire.

Premier’s most recent tree planting day took place in Keighley, nestled between the Airedale countryside and the Haworth Moorland in West Yorkshire. Staff from Premier’s Leeds branch teamed up with their Carbon Capture customers to take part in a special tree-planting project to support the Woodland Trust’s MOREhedges scheme.  

As part of the Woodland Trust’s woodland creation initiative, MOREhedges provides saplings, advice, and funding for new hedging projects of 100-1000 metres, at sites around the UK. Hedgerows are important features of the countryside as they create new wildlife corridors that connect trees with the surrounding landscape.

Throughout the day, Premier and their customers successfully helped to plant over 500 saplings, including species of tree such as field maple, hawthorn, hazel, and crab apple. These saplings will form part of a planned 600m of hedgerow for the area and will help to provide landscape corridors with the adjacent woodland areas as well as beneficial habitats that support small mammals, birds, and insects.

Hussein Ismail, Premier’s Sustainable Business Director said, “this was not only Premier’s first tree planting event of the year but it was also the first one that we’ve been able to host in Yorkshire. The weather was on our side and we’re thankful to everybody who attended, planted trees, and helped to create a fantastic day.”
