BWOC supports the creation of new woodland, planting 123,000 native and coniferous trees
First-ever Grown in Britain partner woodland lays down its roots
“Cranborne is one of seven carbon woodlands we have supported and our staff and customers have responded incredibly well to this ongoing commitment. What we particularly liked about Cranborne was its productive element – the chance to contribute to creating a woodland that would be able to ensure its own permanence through the sustainable extraction of timber.”
Mark Wayne, BWOC’s Managing Director
Fuel distributor BWOC Ltd has a long term programme of supporting UK woodland creation in recognition of its own and its fuel card customers’ carbon footprint. In a recent project with Grown in Britain BWOC purchased over 21,000 tonnes of carbon capture credits, which has contributed critical funding to the creation of new woodland located at the Cranborne Estate. The carbon woodland is certified under the UK Woodland Carbon Code by Forest Carbon Ltd.
123,000 native and coniferous new trees have been planted and are being managed for continuous cover – designed to encourage biodiversity and provide a source of high-quality home-grown timber. The timber harvested at Cranborne for use in UK markets will support ongoing management of the woodland.
