Thinking green to support our environment

Acting green and thinking green go hand in hand here at Greenfleet. Sourcing sustainable ways to manage our newly planted forests has been key throughout all revegetation projects. One particular organisation, Sure Gro Tree Max, has been supplying Greenfleet with a range of environmentally friendly products and equipment for many years. The team is now offsetting their emissions through Greenfleet.

Providing the tools to help our cause

Sure Gro Tree Max has been a logical and successful choice time and time again for Greenfleet. “We’re proud to be working with such a responsible organisation. Our values naturally align and this is very important to us,” said Greenfleet Forester Eoghan O’Connor.

The organisation has provided equipment such as tree guards and stakes, browsing deterrent (a non-toxic, environmentally friendly repellent), to assist with nearly a dozen Greenfleet forests. “They have always been at the forefront of innovation in the field of tree protection and their reliability in delivering our needs has been the reason for our long relationship. We have conducted several trials with Sure Gro Tree Max, to continue to develop environmentally friendly and robust trees guards and animal deterrents and to ensure the long-term viability of our forests,” said Eoghan.

Taking the next step

In 2016, Sure Gro Tree Max joined Greenfleet as a supporter by offsetting the emissions from their vehicle fleet. “We have been assisting Greenfleet with their revegetation requirements for a long period and only saw fit to sign up!” said Dale.

At Greenfleet, we are able to restore native ecosystems and tackle climate change thanks to the contributions of our amazing supporters, just like Sure Gro Tree Max,’’ said Wayne Wescott, CEO of Greenfleet.

Year after year, individuals and organisations help Greenfleet plant more native forests to offset their carbon emissions and it’s their continuous support which makes a huge difference to the environment,” Wayne added.
