Antalis hosts tree planting day

Antalis hosts tree planting day
Antalis and its partners have played an integral role in supporting new woodland creation at Lowther Estate in Cumbria.

 Over the years, Lowther Estate’s programme has funded the conversion of high-intensity arable land into sustainable forestry. The project is not only capturing carbon, but is also benefitting local wildlife by linking existing blocks of estate forestry to create a unique woodland corridor that joins the southern part of the property with important pasture woodlands.

Alongside the opportunity to plant a tree, the Lowther Estate Manager gave Antalis and its carbon-offsetting-committed customers an educational tour of the forest. Customers were thus able to see first-hand how their carbon offsetting activity through Antalis has supported the development, and how ongoing management and protection of the woodland is subsequently delivering positive climate action. Lowther Forest covers a total of 240 hectares and is comprised of 70 percent conifer trees and 30 percent mixed broadleaves.

Antalis has supported Lowther Forest for several years, and its work with Forest Carbon across three projects has resulted in 16,488 trees being planted, 4,645 tonnes of CO2 captured and 13 hectares of ecosystem restored.

Matthew Botfield of Antalis commented: “Antalis helps customers to compensate for the carbon impact of any purchase made from within our entire product range.

“Customers can offset the carbon generated in the manufacture and delivery of their products through the planting of new indigenous woodland across the UK. There are huge fringe benefits to planting indigenous woodlands, such as creating a habitat for biodiversity, recreational space, flood mitigation and soil and water protection. Customers also have the peace of mind that Forest Carbon’s projects are certified under the UK Government’s Woodland Carbon Code.”
