Defra minster Therese Coffey announced the fund for farmers, foresters and land managers to be able to apply for up to £6,800 per hectare to plant, weed and protect more trees when application forms for the next round of the Government’s Woodland Creation grant are made available in September. As part of the Countryside Stewardship scheme, the Government aims to plant more than three million trees, creating 1,900 hectares of new woodland and contributing to the government’s ambition to plant 11 million trees, with a further one million in towns and cities.
BHT increased capacity for plant protection and planting accessories with a new shed and extra mezzanine level in 2016. The company has now committed to a further mezzanine level in another shed.
In total, this means capacity will now span across five warehouses. The new mezzanine floor in one warehouse will add to the other mezzanine added last year. This means covered storage capacity will soon be more than 21,000 square feet.
BHT have also improved site access with a new commercial entrance.
