Here at Hunter Stoves, we’re passionate about protecting the environment, and are committed to the research and development of efficient, eco-friendly heating solutions. We’re also actively working to lower our carbon footprint, most notably through the installation of solar panels at our Cornwall factory. As part of our ongoing commitment to preserving the natural environment, we’re proud to announce that we’ve joined the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, as a Rowan member for 2017/18.
The Woodland Trust work tirelessly to protect, restore and create woodland across the UK. Their vision is clear – a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. Together with the help of over 500,000 members, they campaign to save threatened woodland, fight to breathe new life into ancient woods, and aim to enrich local landscapes by planting thousands of hectares of new woodland.
The Trust rely on the generosity and enthusiasm of their supporters to help them achieve their vision for the woodland of the UK. As a Rowan member of the Woodland Trust, our support will help them to plant more trees, protect native woodland and wildlife, and inspire everyone to enjoy and value our woods and trees. We believe that reforesting the UK is vital in ensuring the healthy future of our natural environment, and that by doing so we can preserve our country’s natural heritage for it to be enjoyed by future generations.
Speaking of our new membership, Paul Grimes, Managing Director of Hunter Stoves, said, “We’re extremely proud to be a part of this important initiative, supporting the invaluable work of the Woodland Trust.” He went on to add, “We are hugely committed to operating sustainably as a business, whilst encouraging stove-users to burn wood from sustainable, well-managed sources. Becoming a member of the Woodland Trust was a clear next step for us.”
