Arboriculture group adds to service with recycling unit

Acorn Environmental Management Group, the Midlands-based arboriculture and landscape management group, has moved to a new bumper biomass storage base.

The 1,000sq m purpose-built centre in Redditch includes storage facilities for biomass material produced from its arboriculture work.

"All of our biomass is recycled," said managing director Kevin O'Rourke. "At the end of each day all of our teams deposit their woodchip and timber sections at the depot. It is collected 25 tonnes at a time."

"This is a significant step. Investing in a new depot and recycling facility better places us to offer local authorities, housing associations and highways maintenance departments a more complete approach to their arboriculture operations.

"We are in a unique position to provide a low-carbon and highly sustainable approach for no extra cost".

The facility also includes plant and machinery maintenance and vehicle refuelling.
