Volunteers plant 2,361 trees for a greener future in Moresby Hall

National Highways, in collaboration with Amey, A E Yates, and AC Landscapes, are celebrating a remarkable achievement after successfully planting 2,361 native trees along the A595 at Moresby. This initiative marked a significant step towards enhancing local biodiversity and mitigating environmental impact.

The volunteer day brought together over 70 enthusiastic participants from various stakeholders, including National Highways, contractors, local colleges, businesses, and residents. With the generous support of AC Landscapes, who provided the native trees, the volunteers planted a diverse range of species, including English oak, hazel, and elder. The efforts aimed to create woodland and hedgerows, improving the natural landscape, and encouraging habitat diversity.

The initiative aligns with National Highways’ broader mission to enhance local biodiversity and mitigate carbon emissions. By creating new woodland, scrubland, and hedgerows, the project seeks to improve connectivity between habitats, provide sanctuary for wildlife, and contribute towards storing carbon. Tree planting also plays a crucial role in flood risk reduction, air quality improvement, and promoting community well-being by reconnecting people with nature.

In addition to the volunteer day, National Highways and A E Yates, planted an additional 1,200 trees as part of the landscaping efforts on nearby roundabouts and verges in Moresby.
