• Premier Paper plants a further 800 trees in ancient woodland

        • As part of its Carbon Capture programme, Premier Paper invited customers to come along and help tidy, clear and plant a variety of trees and hedgerow.

          Working alongside the Woodland Trust, the event took place at Pullabrook Woods in Bovey Valley, which is an area of accessible woodlands on the East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve. Thanks to a successful tree planting day, the Valley now features a new mix of Oak, Hazel, Rowan and Alder trees.

          Hussein Ismail, Premier’s CSR Marketing Manager said, “this is the third tree planting event that we have hosted at Bovey Valley and it was great to meet up with customers and further develop the site. Everyone came together to clear the grounds, plant trees and hedgerows. It was humbling to see so many people dedicated to Carbon Capture and giving something back to the environment.”

          Throughout the 1960’s, Pullabrook Woods was abundant with conifer trees; a process now slowly being reversed by the Woodland Trust in order to re-establish flourishing native woodland. The project focused on clearing and burning the conifer brash which had covered the floor due to tree felling, to allow for the replanting. Further plans to develop and protect the woodland are underway, with the planted areas being restored to native broadleaf through regular thinning, to control light levels on the forest floor and prevent weeds developing.

          Premier continues to offer its customers the opportunity to capture the CO2 emissions from their paper purchases by planting and conserving native woodland, as they have done at Pullabrook Woods. Click here for more information about the Carbon Capture programme.
