Worcester Business Journal – Ameresco To Plant More Trees In England

Ameresco, Inc. has extended its partnership with the British charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to plant 1,000 trees and help landscape the Yorkshire Dales National Park in England. Ameresco, an energy efficiency company based in Framingham, planted 500 trees last year as part of the partnership and will now plant an additional 500 trees this year.

The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is an independent charity dedicated to the preservation of woodlands in the Yorkshire Dales, a national park in Northern England. The partnership with Ameresco is part of its bigger project to plant 28,000 new trees. Ameresco helped plant 500 trees through financial aid and employee volunteer efforts in 2022. Employee volunteers from Ameresco will work alongside the YDMT team to maintain and plant trees across the woodlands, according to an Ameresco press release on Monday. The effort should offset 80 metric tons of carbon dioxide throughout the next 50 years. Ameresco will help with meadow restoration work by creating wildflower habitat for threatened pollinator species.
