We acknowledge the significance of our entire ecosystem and the vulnerable status of various wildlife species, particularly crucial pollinators like bees and butterflies, and native mammals such as hedgehogs.
A significant percentage of the UK’s peatlands have undergone degradation due to the destructive practices of peat extraction. Peatlands play a crucial role in biodiversity, providing a habitat for a wide range of rare species, including birds, reptiles and mammals. Furthermore, peatlands act as vital carbon stores, and when damaged, release the carbon which ultimately contributes to climate change.
To prioritise environmental sustainability, our container trees have been peat-free for many years. Instead, we utilise compost sustainably sourced from the UK, incorporating wood fibre, bark recycled coir and green matter. By adopting peat-free practices, we not only protect the environment, but microscopic life within healthy soil and compost. In particular, fungi, one of the most significant groups in the biological world, play a crucial role. Fungi form symbiotic relationships with the compost, exchanging nutrients for carbohydrates. These nutrients are essential in promoting the health and growth of our trees.Contact Us
Utilising our reservoir for tree watering presents a superior environmental approach compared to using mains water. Our carefully implemented drip irrigation system ensures that our trees receive precisely the required amount of water without any runoff or wastage. This efficient method not only benefits the trees themselves, but also contributes to the overall well-being of surrounding wildlife.
Our reservoir serves as a thriving habitat for a diverse range of wildlife, including bees, butterflies, and various bird species. Its presence attracts these creatures, providing them with a suitable environment to flourish. Moreover, during the first half of the year, the area surrounding the reservoir burst with vibrant wildflowers, offering a colourful and enticing landscape. As the year progresses, the second half sees the emergence of different types of fungi, further enriching the biodiversity of the ecosystem.
