Area of work:
The London boroughs have a considerable resource of wood from the management of parks, gardens and woodland, but much of it is sent to landfill.
BioRegional brokered an innovative deal between tree surgery business City Suburban Tree Surgeons Ltd, and Croydon Council to manage and dispose of all the Council’s wood waste. BioRegional established a TreeStation – a centre where waste wood is received from many sources, turned into woodchip and delivered for use as a fuel.
The BioRegional Development Group is a entrepreneurial charity established in 1994, to develop practical sustainability solutions. It carries out a wide range of activities, including sustainable housing development and product supply, paper recycling, charcoal production, forestry, materials reclamation, mini pulp mills, and hemp production.
