As we edge closer to completion at Woburn Forest, we’ve drafted in the help of a local company to plant thousands of trees and shrubs.
Land Structure Limited, based in Milton Keynes, were contacted earlier this year and awarded the contract. Planting began in March and will continue throughout spring. But, with more than 62,000 native trees and shrubs to bed in, this is no mean feat.
Using a team of just ten people, the firm – whose mantra is ‘Helping nature looks its best’ – are planting around the 625 lodges at Woburn Forest, as well as a number of main areas including The Pancake House, Cycle Centre and Arrivals Lodge.
Mike Miller, Joint Managing Director at Land Structure Limited, says: “We are delighted to be working with a company who share our ethos of protecting nature. As a local company, we have known about the new Center Parcs Village for some time and we’re excited to be a part of this project, delivering a planting scheme that will use native plants to attract more local species to the area and allow them to flourish.”
Including the 20,000 native trees which have already been planted at Woburn Forest, almost 100,000 native trees and shrubs will have been planted by the end of 2014.
Ian Buck, Ground Services Manager at Center Parcs, added: “Protecting and enhancing the woodland around our Villages is extremely important to us, and the work that Land Structure Limited are carrying out is key to this.”
