New trees introduced at business centre in Burntwood

A business centre in Burntwood has been given an environmental lift after new oak trees were around it.

Volunteers from the Forest of Mercia planted the trees next to Burntwood Business Park as part of the launch of the Government’s Big Tree Plant initiative.

The trees have been introduced between Washery Pool and the business park to help screen buildings from the nature area.

Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet member for the environment Mike Maryon said:

“It’s great to see local people getting involved in making the county a more attractive, healthier place to live. The Big Tree Plant initiative gives us with the opportunity to plant trees in residential areas; attracting wildlife, creating shade and shelter, reducing traffic noise and helping to fight the effects of air pollution and climate change.”

The Forest of Mercia Project Team is available to provide advice to any local community group interested in joining The Big Tree Plant. For more information should call Steve Morris on 01543 370737 or visit the official website.
