Tree-mendous idea from Harrogate Bus Co

The Harrogate Bus Company is celebrating its all-electric buses by planning to plant one tree for every 10,000 miles covered by the vehicles.

This means 40 trees will be planted in woodland areas around Harrogate every year.

The Harrogate Bus Company’s CEO Alex Hornby says: “Our electric buses are helping to clear the air right across town – and when we introduced them in 2018, we promised to plant one tree for every 10,000 miles they cover.

The first tree is now in place, with more to planted in woodland areas around Bilton, Jennyfield and in the pine woods near Pannal Ash.

Keith Wilkinson MBE from the Bilton Conservation Group says: “We welcome these tree planting initiatives in Nidd Gorge and the Pinewoods, which will absorb and lock up many tonnes of man-made carbon dioxide emissions for a lifetime.”
