Glanbia launches initiative to increase the planting of trees and hedgerows.
Glanbia Ireland and its family farm suppliers are embarking on a new initiative to drive increased planting of trees and hedgerows in the Irish countryside through the ‘Operation Biodiversity’ programme.
"This Is A Great Initiative"
Éanna Ní Lamhna explained the benefits of the initiative:
“Vibrant hedgerows on farms provide wildlife corridors for many of the insects, birds and mammals that are such a help to the farming operations.
They also provide much needed shelter for grazing animals. Pockets of trees on farms play their part in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they grow and help to combat climate change."
