Conservation Schemes

Conservation Schemes to Offset Carbon Footprint

Working with The National Trust, Alice Holts Forest in Surrey and Moor Trees in Dartmoor we are able to offset our carbon footprint and achieve Carbon Negative status.

Fourfront Group has recently helped The National Trust re-establish an ancient wood at the Harewood Estate in Surrey. Re-introducing ancient woodlands is of significant value from an ecological and historical viewpoint. Non-native species such as silver birch are strangling forests and causing sub-species and wildlife to die.
The National Trust protect the UK's historic houses, gardens and ancient woodlands, so it was a privilege, to partner with them and to be involved in such an exciting and prestigious project

Established in 1999, Moor Trees creates and restores native woodland for biodiversity benefit and for climate change mitigation. We support their tree planting, initiatives which produce not only tangible environmental benefits, but also social ones through working with hundreds of volunteers of all ages and abilities.

Fourfront Group has also partnered with the Forestry Commission to develop an environmental volunteering scheme. Employees take part on regular volunteering days in Surrey helping with activities such as path clearance, coppicing and hedge laying. We find increasing the biodiversity of the local area a positive and rewarding experience.

Our more recent partnerships include Trees for Cities and a Native Orchard Education Programme launched at Ashley Primary School in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.
