On Thursday 29th November Newton Press took part in an active day creating new native woodland in association with Premier Paper’s Carbon Capture programme.

Taking place at Hedley Hall, an ancient woodland just south of Newcastle, Newton Press were amongst 30 tree planters busy working alongside the Woodland Trust, to plant 1,300 Oak, Silver Birch, Hazel, and Cherry saplings.

The Hedley Hall woodland site is just 2 miles south of Sunniside and 8 miles south of Newcastle. The woods occupy part of Hedley Fell overlooking Beamish Open Air Museum and the town of Stanley.

Newton Press’ commitment to the Carbon Capture programme captures the CO2 emissions from their paper purchases, providing an effective way to reduce their carbon footprint whilst creating and maintaining native woodland here in the UK.
