Oakover Nurseries Ltd grows and supplies trees and shrubs primarily to other nurseries in the forestry and amenity market and Christmas tree growers.
We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our operations.
We will aim to achieve this through our commitment to:
- Complying with all relevant legislation and regulations and exceed them where possible;
- Minimise waste and risks by evaluating and monitoring our operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible;
- Involve employees in our environmental programme and provide necessary training to enable them to discharge their responsibilities.
Sustaining the productiveness of our land by ensuring our operations do not have a negative impact on our holding.
To support elements of improved environmental performance, Oakover Nurseries takes part in trials and research programmes. These have included water use efficiency, peat reduction and integrated pest management and the reduction in pesticide use.
Oakover Nurseries is committed to recycling water specifically at our Container Unit, thus reducing the amount of ‘fresh’ water used.
