Global mixer brand Fever-Tree has planted a mini forest in London in collaboration with environmental charity Earthwatch Europe.
Described as the city’s first Tiny Forest, the woodland consists of 600 planted trees in an area the size of a tennis court.
Volunteers from Fever-Tree and the local community will help maintain the dense, fast-growing woodland will contributes to the regeneration of derelict land in Hammersmith Park.
Jess Ainley, corporate responsibility and sustainability manager at Fever-Tree, said: “Urban tree planting has a huge role to play in enriching biodiversity in our cities as well as helping to protect against the impacts of climate change.
“Fever-Tree is so proud to be planting London’s first Tiny Forest, just down the road from our head office and in doing so creating a green space for local community and nature to thrive in.”
The Fever-Tree Tiny Forest is said to be capable of enriching biodiversity by attracting more than 500 animal and plant species within the first three years, and by improving air quality. It also reconnects people with nature, while helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change through the support of urban wildlife.
