For many people, cutting down trees is associated with environmental devastation, particularly in the Amazon rainforest.
But sustainable forestry, with owners planting new trees as they cut down old ones, is a different business altogether. Trees capture carbon so they reduce greenhouse gases simply by existing. And there is a concerted effort across the UK to add to our stock of sustainable woodland.
Gresham House is part of this drive. An AIM-listed investment company, the firm owns 320,000 acres of forest land across Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the North of England. Last year, the group planted more than four million trees and captured 1.5million tons of carbon along the way.
Gresham House plc (LON:GHE) is a London Stock Exchange quoted specialist alternative asset manager offering funds, direct investment and tailored investment solutions, including co-investment, in public equity, private assets, forestry, new energy and housing.
