Donation of Tree Stumps to a Local Nursery

We are currently on site at Westleigh High School in Wigan and as part of the works we are building a brand new, stand alone classroom block within the school’s existing grounds.

To accommodate the footprint of this new building, a number of trees had to be removed and these were used for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Chipped on site to make paths around the school, including a new fire escape route;
  • Offered to members of the local community free of charge for use as winter firewood.

In addition, at F Parkinson Ltd, we donated over 20 tree stumps to a nearby nursery located around 100 yards from the site. The children are using them as outdoor seats and playtime stepping stones.

The nursery was delighted with their new playground tree stumps and thanked the site team for their donation. We envisage this will be the start of a close relationship with the nursery as we intend on being further involved as works progress on site.

Once the new classroom block is completed we will be planting new trees to replace the ones removed, and with the number of trees planted being more than the number of trees removed, this allows us to carbon offset our project.
