Last week saw the planting of over 1,000 trees at Hyndford, all native species. Spread between the entrance road and around their Bug Hotels, they will have a big impact on the area.
Employees for years to come will benefit from the scenery, extra attracted wildlife and, of course, fresher air! Along with those benefits, the local community will benefit from having the view of the Quarry being hidden behind magnificent trees (eventually) and also a reduction on any noise travelling from the site.
All this will hopefully help towards more awards for Team Hyndford and aid in our challenge of having an extension granted. Mark Noel, Trainee Aggregate Manager, commented: “It feels good to think that in 20 years I can return to the Quarry and remember the day those huge trees were planted!”
