Billington Bioenergy are delighted to announce our partnership with The Mersey Forest as part of our corporate social responsibility programme.
We are supporting The Mersey Forest by volunteering our time to help with woodland management and donating funds towards their other initiatives. You can read more about their work here.
For the first chapter, the Billington Bioenergy Team got back to nature with an education and volunteering day at Delamere Forest. Delamere Forest is a “shady oasis in the midst of Cheshire. It’s a place for families to let off steam, escape the crowds and find peace in the heart of the forest.”
The team spent the morning learning about sustainable forest management before getting stuck into clearing scrub from the area surrounding young Oak trees.
The Mersey Forest is a growing network of woodlands and green spaces across Cheshire and Merseyside, who have planted more than 9 million trees since their inception in the early 1990s.
As the UK’s leading wood pellet supplier, we care about the wellbeing of our local and wider community and as such, make the conscious decision to support initiatives that are not only sustainable but enrich lifestyles.
We believe that forests play a vital role in our lives, they are a habitat for wildlife, provide sustainable fuel, contribute to the economy and importantly offer a fantastic recreational space for us to enjoy.
We are delighted to be able to contribute towards the Mersey Forest and will continue to lend our time and support throughout the year.
