The power produced displaces an equivalent amount of power from the […]
Planting takes place in school locations and other protected biodiversity sites in Scotland. Planting trees sequesters our carbon emissions. Through photosynthesis trees absorb carbon dioxide to produce oxygen and wood. By ensuring that trees planted are native broad leaf species we also help to preserve our environment and biodiversity. All trees are high quality cell […]
