AB Print Group Help to create new Hedgerows in West YorkshirePosted On April 7, 2022
AB Print Group have teamed up with the Woodland Trust, to create new hedgerows in West Yorkshire.
It is said that when the skies are clear and the sun is shining there is no better place to be than out in the countryside, that couldn’t be truer when talking about the picturesque town of Keighley, nestled between the Airedale countryside and the Haworth Moorland in West Yorkshire; the location of AB Print most recent tree planting day, supporting 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, AB Print 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.
AB Print are proud supporters of the Carbon Capture® programme. The scheme has grown to become the industry’s leading environmental initiative with well over 600 customers fully signed up and committed to the cause. To date AB Print has helped to raise in excess of £1.37m for the Woodland Trust, planting over 354,000 trees and capturing over 82,000 tonnes of CO₂; and the best part is 100% of all money raised through the Carbon Capture® programme, goes directly to the Woodland trust to help create and maintain native woodland around the UK.
