INVESTING IN THE ENVIRONMENT
According to Investors in the Environment tree planting is recognised as one of the most engaging, environmentally friendly activities that people can take part in to better the planet.
With National Tree Planting a current focus, a number of the Helmsley Group team have recently set out on a mission planting 1000 trees and 2 hedges in Oswaldkirk,
North Yorkshire. Trees provide a multitude of bene ts, both long and short term. As well as being attractive aesthetically, they remove and store carbon from the atmosphere, slow heavy rain and so reduce the risk of  ooding, enhance air quality and improve the urban heat island e ect by re ecting sunlight and providing shade. In addition, the physical weight of a tree consists of approximately 50% carbon, as such trees have a strong climate change mitigation e ect when in high enough numbers.
