Snows Timber has joined with a local organisation to improve the view of the Beckery Industrial Estate from Wearyall Hill.
They have already begun a tree-planting programme and there is more to come.
Glastonbury’s Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee has established a Trees sub group with the aim of enhancing the aesthetic and appeal of the town.
The committee approached several local businesses asking for assistance. Snows were keen to help. They have already planted 11 alba willows alongside a shed at their Beckery Industrial Estate Distribution Centre and agreed to plant more trees around the buildings.
Committee member Ian Mutch said: “Snows are enthusiastic about the project and been very co-operative in its launch.”
“The Beckery initiative is part of a broader plan to plant around the town and create wildlife corridors to assist the ecological health of the area.”
“My vision is that the whole site could become an inspiration for other industrial sites around the country whose functionality might be complemented by cultural and environmental imagery to promote the kind of consciousness that has been a magnet for many who visit Glastonbury.”
Bob Kirkland, Operations Director at Snows said: “We’ve always felt part of the community in Glastonbury and this is a real grassroots initiative that we are grateful to be involved with. This is a beautiful part of the country and we are delighted to play our part in keeping it that way.”
