The Green Insurance Company at Ardochy

The Green Insurance Company at Ardochy

Ardochy is home to The Green Insurance Company's 1 millionth tree, planted in June 2011.

The three themes of the Ardochy project are:

  • Carbon lockup
  • Native woodland corridor linkage
  • Development of black grouse leks

The 500 acre new woodland includes a significant area of Caledonian Scots Pine, which is a UK Biodiversity Action Plan Priority Habitat. The ancient semi-natural Birch woodlands at the eastern and western ends of the site are being linked with each other through a substantial planted native woodland corridor. The mature birch trees on the boundary of the scheme provide significant insect feeding to encourage Black Grouse leks (mating grounds) on the site.

Ardochy is home to The Green Insurance Company's one millionth trees.
