UPM Tilhill reaches halfway mark in planting project

Landscaping firm UPM Tilhill has reached the halfway mark in a project to plant more than 220,000 trees and shrubs along the new A421, linking Bedford with the M1.

The project aims to reduce the noise pollution and visual impact of the new road and to create wildlife corridors and habitats. The firm is planting native species such as common alder, silver birch and oak. Work began in 2009 and UPM Tilhill will carry out maintenance over the next five years.
