Scrub Caps Planting Trees In Yorkshire
Carbon Neutral Projects
We recently got accredited with Carbon Neutral status covering all our day to day operations and fabric we purchase and turn into scrub caps.
In choosing a carbon offsetting program we wanted to make sure at least some of the projects are actually being run in Britain to support not just global climate action but local too.
We are based in Sheffield in South Yorkshire so when we saw a Yorkshire carbon offset project we were sold. Here is more information on the project below.
Yorkshire Woodland Management - England
Tree planting is perhaps what the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is most well known for. Since starting in 1996 the trust has helped to plant around 1.5 million broadleaf trees, creating native woodlands of all shapes and sizes throughout the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale.
In this project, one of the major objectives of the Dales Woodland Strategy is the creation of new native woodland in the Yorkshire Dales. Currently, only 2.5% of the National Park is covered with native broadleaf trees compared with the national average of 8%. The long term aim is to almost double the amount of broadleaf cover in the National Park to 5000 hectares by 2020.
The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is working with local landowners, the National Park Authority and other interested parties to help achieve these goals and the creation of this group scheme forms part of their strategy. It is hoped that income through supporting this project that will facilitate further increases in the amount of native broadleaf tree cover.
