'Afforestation' is our new favourite word. Meaning the process of planting trees, or sowing seeds in a barren land devoid of any trees to create a forest, it will contribute to delivering the UK target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
With the 2019-2020 bare root planting season drawing closer, work has recently started to add a sixth warehouse to the British Hardwood Tree Nursery (BHT) premises in Snitterby, near Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
British Hardwood Tree Nursery sponsored and attended the third Lincolnshire Rural Charities Dinner, which took place at the Lincolnshire Showground on Thursday 11th April 2019.
Part of a ground-breaking project to reduce flood risk, improve water quality and encourage new woodland creation, the Woodlands for Water project is helping land managers and farmers to tackle the specialist skills needed for woodland planting.
BHT can only operate to its continually high standards with the hard work and professionalism of its close-knit and enthusiastic team. Two of our BHT team have reached their 10 year service milestones this season - so we're saying THANK YOU to Richard Furness and Keiron Proctor.
