As Brentwood’s leading tree specialists, we are certainly forward thinking when it comes to being environmentally conscious, we take our role very seriously to help reduce the carbon emission.
We clearly have a vast amount of green waste which is due to the nature of our work, ie timber which is the main reason recycling is such a key piece of our work ethos. Here at Prince Tree Surgery, we process and recycle all the twigs, leaves and branches created from our work through a wood chipper in our endeavours to keep running as a sustainable business. These are then sold on to Stobart Biomass which transports it to Biomass power stations all over the UK to generate electricity.
We roughly sell an average of 54 tonnes of wood chip each month which is then used to produce electricity at biomass power plants across the country. These power stations commonly deliver power with 50-80% less greenhouse emissions than gas or coal-fired power stations. Biomass plants have become increasingly popular methods of generating sustainable energy and look set to play an important part in combating climate change inasmuch as the wood they burn is sourced economically, through tree surgery operations, for example us here at Prince Tree Surgery and other tree surgery businesses which produce a generous measure of green waste.
Economically sourced biomass is all the more ecologically friendly in light of the fact that it is a renewable fuel which is low in carbon. As biomass develops, it retains carbon dioxide from the air which is then returned to the atmosphere when the fuel is burned in a power plant.
By cutting greenhouse gas emissions, this sort of energy creation will lessen the effect of climate change which incorporates ocean levels rising, droughts which can result in loss of wildlife.
Here at Prince Tree Surgery – Brentwood’s principal tree surgery specialists – we are extremely proud of our efforts to develop new and sustainable methods of generating energy. We will carry on and remain proud of the waste we accumulate through our work is to be used in an extremely positive way. Some biomass power stations have the ability to create enough energy to supply up to 250,000 homes every year! This is all helping to safeguard our planet for not just for tomorrow but for the future.
