12th March 2007

The company are pleased to announce that they are set to plant the first 50 trees in the Sence Valley National Forest, Ibstock, the planting is due to take place from 9.45 on 10th March 2007.

In recent years the global stability of our planet has been at the forefront of talks between world leaders and the general public alike. Gavin Jones, Chief Executive for J A Ball New Homes commented, “It is becoming increasingly apparent that we all need to do our bit to help the environment. The construction industry has long been a major contributor to the problem of global warming and it is hoped that we can now help to combat the issue by effectively putting back in what we have previously taken out of the environment “

During its lifetime a single oak tree can absorb approximately 3 tonnes of CO2. The average CO2 emissions created during the construction of a standard 3-bedroom dwelling equates to approximately 2.1 tonnes. Although this initiative may not have an immediate effect on our environment, in the long term it will enable us to reduce the levels of CO2 within our atmosphere and help to protect and preserve our delicate planet.
